I am creating a program to change my desktop background by overwriting a file, but after the change i have to manually put focus on the desktop and press F5. Is there a way to do this with autoit? Thanks.

The reason for using ControlSend() vice Send() is the ability to target a particular window/control even if it's not the focus:

ControlSend("[CLASS:Progman; TITLE:Program Manager]", "", "", "{F5}")
