Set background image?

Recommended Posts

How do you set the background image with a JPG (or HTML) file from Windows, where the Desktop Properties dialog box is unavailable? Is it in the registry (I hope not, it may be banned too) or accessible with AutoIt?

Can't you simply right click on the Image and select "Set As Desktop Background"? :)

You could always send an image to IrfanView, using the /wall=X switch, e.g..

I_VIEW32.EXE "W:\media\wallpaper\Widescreen\glassorbs.jpg" /wall=1

Everyone has IrfanView installed, right?

No, not everyone, I use PhotoFiltre, GIMP, and FSViewer32

Just downloaded IrfanView. This program should be enough, the explanation is more than decent. Thank you.

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",2)
$mywin = Run("Y:\irfanview\i_view32.exe Y:\abc.png /wall=0", "",@SW_HIDE)
WinClose($mywin)
MsgBox(0,"","Done.")

Darn! I wish I'd refreshed the page before posting!

Anyway, ashley, let's pretend that you didn't read Lar's post, and clicked my link, thinking that I was spoon-feeding you the answer, and then BANG! You are at google, seeing the foolishness of your ways.

It's a more subtle approach, I find, to let folk be foolish in private! :)

Yes. Intolerance of stupidity causes insanity.

For future reference, There is a reason the background tab has been disabled, Its so you don't set a background.

If it is disabled, you should probably just leave it alone and go back to your work, And learn something that will help you get a job later on in life.

Actually, everything display-wise has been disabled. (Not fun.) Learning to change the background image is nothing more than child's play compared to real programming tasks, of course, but nonetheless is useful.
