Desktop background color

Recommended Posts

Gif

I've searched regedit with no success... anyone know?

what exacly do you mean desktop background color?

are you reffering to the wallpaper's colour or a specific colour that you want to get from the desktop?

if yes then use PixelGetColor() and PixelSearch()

EDIT:(Smoke_N has more posts then Devoloper Chat) i would say (Smoke_N has more posts then Devoloper Chat, ActiveX/COM Help and Support (AutoItX) forum, AutoIt v2 Help and Support forum and Announcements and Site News forum !!!

:rolleyes::rambo:

I'm looking for the color that is shown then you Right click on the desktop, click Properties and go the desktop tab.. It's the background color that fills the rest of the screen if you image doesn't take up the whole desktop. So pixel color/search wouldn't help...

:rolleyes: I think I'll add that in!

Edit: It didn't fit...

Look here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop... If you find the image in that list I suppose you could change it, I'm not sure if it it's there though... Edited by Piano_Man

Check out the following Registry Key HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop - Wallpaper and see if theres a value in there, a lot of companies use that to set the background picture before a user logs in (also shows up if you ctrl + alt + del but probably wouldnt do that on home/single machine) sounds like something may be set there.
