How to use HTML page as desktop wallpaper

Q: How to use HTML page as desktop wallpaper

Seems a step back in function from Vista to Win 7. My Vista PC had an HTML page serving as my desktop....it has some embedded flash and other goodies. How do I get Win 7 to allow me to select an HTML page for my desktop when all it appears to allow is photos? Win Search has not supplied any userful ideas. I hope the community has a solution.

Maybe try this gadget. It's not exactly Active Desktop but it's resizeable (the taskbar is 40px btw)

You could definitely do it in Vista. However, in windows 7 it no longer gives me the option to select anything other than a picture file? How would I use a customised html page as my desktop wallpaper?

Thanks

The option was not in Windows Vista....unless I missed something?

I'm currently designing a table based website in Dreamweaver, but am having a problem importing a drop down menu in the form of html. It gives me the error "The selected file is not the correct format. Please select a file which was exported from Fireworks".

The problem with this is that all the export options have been set correctly, and is being exported as Dreamweaver HTML, and obviously being exported from Fireworks - so what's the problem? Does anyone have an answer to my problem?

Hi Elmotrix, welcome to tenforums.com!

There may be various ways to accomplish this.

You could scour the web for some of the latest 'Spotlight' images, then put them in a 'Slideshow' folder.

You may also be able to fetch them on your own machine.
You need to show 'Hidden files, folders and drives', then navigate to C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Asset s
then copy all the items to another folder and begin renaming them: 1.jpg, 2.jpg, etc.

Here are some of the latest:

Hi there,

So a while back when i was running XP on this rig, i had a active desktop wallpaper setup that would display animated local radar images. Basically the same radar you would see if you put in your zipcode in the weather.com or accuweather.com radar section.

So now with Win 7, i cant get it to work for the life of me....and no, sorry, the wimpy sidebar gadgets just dont cut it.

Basically what it was, and am looking to accomplish, is have a live animated radar as my wallpaper / background.
Preferably not the whole screen, just alike a 12X8 square or something relative.

Picture attached of a mock setup of what im talking about.

Im pretty sure i originally was using this as my source for the animated wallpaper:
http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/Loop/NatLoop.gif
My favorite radar site

Any ideas all?

Thanks for reading

The computer crashed hard. I was running an application call Stylizer, a visual css editor. One of the tasks it allows you to do is switch between several browsers to see how a web page may render differently. When I clicked on a form select element while in IE 7.0, it crashed. This is a repeatable bug that I have encountered before(don't click forms select again ya dummy). Anyways, all the applications that were running died and the computer froze requiring a hard reboot. When the computer returned, the desktop wallpaper image was zoomed. Obviously something became corrupted with the crash. I can't find a solution how to unzoom the wallpaper image. I tried a number of display and accessibility options without any luck(screen resolution, DPI, large icons, centered, stretched, etc.). I did notice if I changed from my usual "hide desktop icons", to "show desktop icons", the wallpaper image is then displayed correctly. I can also kill the explorer.exe process and the wallpaper will show correctly. If I run File>New Task(Run...)>explorer.exe again, it reverts back to the zoomed wallpaper. I tried a restore point from the day before. Wiped display drivers and installed the latest. Switched the dvi cable to a different output on the card. I uninstalled Stylizer, all it's files and registy entries. I've run sfc /scannow. I also tried rolling back to SP2 and back again to SP3 to re-install explorer.exe. Still zoomed. I've run out of ...

It was quite some time ago when the family computer(windows XP) was infected with spyware and we had spyshredder on our computer and it wouldn't come off. I got on my user file, downloaded and installed smitfraudfix.exe, and had it clean the computer. When I came back on my user file spyshredder had been removed and I once again had the ability to change my wallpaper from the continuous blue to whatever I wanted. But for my parents user files the spyshredder was gone, but the screen is always white and an internet explorer error message keeps coming on saying that windows cannot find 'file:///C:WINDOWS/privacy_danger/index.htm'. Make sure the internet address is correct. I cant seem to install smitfraudfix on their user file and I can't access the properties menu to change their wallpaper. Please help!

First off there are php/mysql scripts that you can buy that will create folders for people that also gives them an ftp account.

You'll have to look around at http://www.hotscripts.com and to the best of my knowledge most of them cost money.

Second you could use htaccess(assuming you're using apache) to protect your folder.
Heres one little tutorial I quickly grabbed -> http://www.tomsnewbiebooster.com/password-protecting-a-folder.html

You can go to google.com and search for more just type htaccess password protecting folder.

Hello everyone,

I'm in a bit of a bind, I need to create a couple 1000 HTML pages in a short amount of time. The information, with the exception of about 10 items, are static. I tried my hand at a Perl script that would query me for the 10 items and then create the HTML file, but that blew up in my face. Does anyone know of a Perl script or program out there that would meet my needs?

A very strange thing just started happening to my web site. When I viewed my page from the ISP server some of my images were gone - no red x, no nothing, source viewed in Notepad shows the IMG tag is simply not there.

Now this is only happening on certain images and not all img tags on a page disappear. I can't seem to find any similarity between the ones that stay and those that go.

When I view the HTML page in my browser locally all of the images are there. When I view the page from the ISP server some of the img tags are gone (IE 6 or Netscape 7).

I ftp the local page to the ISP server, view the page in my browser and some of the img tags are gone. I ftp the page on the server back to my machine and the tags are all there.

I tried replacing all of the images on the ISP server with my local images (I have an exact copy of the web site on my local machine) in a desperate attempt to figure out why this is happening. It made no difference.

I have never seen this happen before and it's giving me fits. I've seen the red x and I know what it looks like when you're pointing at a file with an incorrect name or address and this is NOT that problem. The tag is just not there in a View Source on the page. This is very weird. If anyone can help me figure out what may be causing this I would be very grateful.

Thanks!

I get popups on most webpages in the lower right hand corner. I assume these are an HTML overlay because it only happens on some pages. IE, Firefox, Chrome, Realplayer homepage, and even the MOTDs inside my Steam games. Sometimes these MOTDs are ads so I'm getting ads in my ads. I've had enough of this inception. Also I get random page redirects.

I recently got rid of some nasty trojans including Sirefef.G/DN. I had previously used Sophos rootkit removal to clean my machine but after a failed reboot and restore I used ESET instead and it removed the trojans but not the ads and redicts.

I havnt tried this since the trojan removals but previoulsy I uninstalled firefox, deleted all registry values, and then reinstalled. After about 5 mins of use, and ad free surfing, the program would shut down and restart, with all my tabs, but this time with ads. I did this twice.

I should probably mention this is a windows 7 x64 machine.

I'm ready and willing. I also have the ESET logs handy.

I am in the process of learning webdesign, starting with HTML and CSS.

I want to be able to drop a spreadsheet file into my webpage's dir and reference a range of cells to show on a page in my website. I would like it to be able have the page reference the spreadsheet each time it (the page) is loaded by a browser.

What I would like to do with this is keep track of a FF survivor pool in a spreadsheet and allow the participants to view the pool results on a page on my site. I would like to just be able to upload the spreadsheet after updating it, and not have to edit the html page every time.

What language would be able to do this? Is this a Javascript function, or is it some other language? I have not started learning JS yet, but plan to once I have a firm hold on CSS.

Also, is there an ideal file format for the spreadsheet? Will .xls work, or should I make it .csv, or even save it as .xml with OpenOffice?

A:HTML page opens with IE want use Firefox

Since posting the query I have found that if the page is loaded in OpenOfficeorg writer and then saved it can be opened with Firefox. The html is shown then whether IE 7 or Firefox is used. The font size also is changed by saving from OpenOfficeorg writer (whether Firefox or IE7 is used to view). I would like to understand what happens and I would still like to know if the page can be viewed in Firefox without the loading into OpenOfficeorg writerand saving

I'm working on creating an autorun CD that starts an .htm page. When the CD is popped in, I want it to pull up my htm page on the desktop centered, with a specific size (800 x 600), and without the min/max buttons, scrollbars, toolbars, status bar, and the inability to resize the screen. Basically, I just want the centered window open with a title bar and the close button. I have tried everything. The only way I can get it now it to make a 2x2 page open up first and correctly open the new page with an event. Once the new page is opened, the 2x2 page runs a window.close command.

I have looked all over the internet and cannot find anything that can do all the commands when the page is first opened. Any suggestions are more than welcome. If you have questions, please let me know. Thanks.

Not going to happen with plain HTML, not everyone uses IE and Windows ya know. You can either package a browser on your CD, or use a program to convert the HTML to an EXE.

When I click on a link, key in a URL or hit refresh on any open page, Opera opens the page with Word! I was downloading something and changed the extension on a file and ever since then it hasn't managed to open anything within Opera. It always tries to open a new Word document.

Has anyone seen this and managed to solve it?

A:Opera Opens Html Page With Word

Hi Pete
In Opera, click tools > preferences > advanced tab. Click "downloads" from the menu on the left. Uncheck "Hide File Types Opened With Opera" in the top right corner.
Select "application/internet shortcut" then click the "edit" button. Make sure "Open with Opera" is the only one selected. You might want to look at the msword association as well.
Anyway, that's were all of Opera's file associations are located and can be changed.
Also take a look in windows explorer at tools > options > file type tab and check the associations in there if the above doesn't happen to work for some reason.

I infrequently design web sites and I cheat and use Front page. Needless to say, I am JS challenged!

I would like to know how to show a link on my web page that will print a specific document. I know how to link to a document and then open that document and print it, but I am wondering how to just print a document with an onclick selection without opening the document.

On another site I read that someone "open the target document in a small pop-up window, immediately move focus back to the main window, execute the print command, and then close the pop-up." However, I do not know how to write any of this.

In the past when I have added JS to the Html section of Front Page - sometimes it shows like it is supposed to and other times it the actual JS appears when I go to view. Any suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

A:desktop wallpaper

Solid colors are used to help people see better. You probably have it set for
High Contrast Themes. Try Left Alt - Left Shift - Print Screen (Print Scrn key)
Next is the same location.
Go to the Ease of Access Center in the Control Panel.
Click - Make the computer easier to see.

If a high contrast Theme has been select, look like you could select a better picture theme.
Right click your empty Desktop - Personalize - pick a Theme. It than goes to the lower left
to be clicked to open for you to select one. After selecting one be sure to SAVE Changes.
Some things are set in the Registry. If possible you could use a restore point before your
trouble started. If it's been a long time you will loose other downloads and whatever changes you have made.
That's the best I can come up with.

I have followed the instructions from the following thread:

http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/674977-solved-make-desktop-wallpaper-unchangeable.html

The regedit fix works initially but it doesn't stop the pupils being able to change the image via right clicking on an image in any web browsers or Windows Picture Viewer. Our Windows 7 machines seem to be locked down ok using a similar fix but the XP (Home edition) ones are proving quite awkward.

I have 2 screens running different parts of the desktop, one at 1920x1200 and one at 1680x1050.

I was wondering how I can get a single picture to span between both monitors, instead of having one picture duplicated for the background on both screens. I've seen this done on two monitors with the same resolution, but I don't think that having the same resolution should matter. Does anyone know how?

I figured it out, have a picture that is 3600x1200 pixels, and make sure that the strip of 1680x150 at the bottom right has nothing in it, then put the setting to "tile" and it will work. I like this because it gives the desktop more variety especially with two screens.

I thought it did this just because it wouldn't work with 2 monitors enabled, but when I turned the 2nd monitor off in Nvidia control panel, the wallpaper flashed back on for a second and now it stays black. I restarted but it still stays black. Even if I try changing wallpaper in Personalize it doesn't change.

Hi, My problem is that I can't 'show next background' on my windows home premium computer just one picture shows. I have dreamscape installed so decided to uninstall but still the problem is there. I have tried the suggested fixes eg. file scan, visual effects is selected 'adjust for best appearance', have made sure that slideshow is available in advanced power options but still no good. I have created a new user account and all is OK there. I would like to transfer everything over to the new account and start again, can I do this and how? System restore can only be started in safe mode. I have tried this but still no good. Have made sure that malawarebytes has scanned for any viruses and all is OK there.
I have my computer just the way I want it and would prefer a fix rather than starting all over. I have windows 7 64 bit. Thanks.

OK, here goes.
I'm attempting to apply wallpaper to my desktop, an .art image i retrieved from a website. For some reason its not showing up in my background display properties, therefore I can't set it as wallpaper. All of the other images i've gotten from the net have been .bmp images and they show up in my background display properties. My question is, why can't i use .art images as wallpaper?
If I can, how?
 

A:desktop wallpaper

i think im right in thiking that the wallpaper can only be .bmp files unless Active desktop iis on, in which case jpeg/jpg files can also be used.

To solve your problem, open the file in a graphics package and just convert it to a .bmp file.

If you havent got a graphcs package, Ifranview: www.ifranview.com is great.

This may seem trivial, but it's bugging me. I have a windows XP and i have the windows classic theme. Every time I put a picture as my wallpaper the color around the words under my icons doesn't blend in with the picture but stays a solid color, so there's like little boxes of blue of white. How do I make those icon words blend in with the picture? thanks. Any help is appreciated.

Hi NorcalJim

Welcome to TSG!

Click on the link below to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows,UnZip the file, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

http://www.merijn.org/files/cwshredder.zip

When it is finished restart your computer.

To help prevent this from happening again, I strongly recommend you install the folowing patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/MS00-075.asp

*Note: The simplest way to make sure you have all the security patches is to go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates"

EDIT: I see now you said you have run Adaware and Spybot, but if you did not run them with these settings you should run them again accordingly.

Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/ and download

I've had the pleasure last night of having to figure out how to clean this thing off over a remote connection--without the benefit of safe mode. It looks like I've successfully cleaned it--no signs of reinfection yet--so I thought I'd share what I've learned. I'm trying to write it as a high-level description so that non-pros might be able to understand it. I'm writing this information down now from memory, though, not from a good set of notes. I'm also not a tech support professional, and in particular I know very little about how BHOs work.

From what I can tell, this is a variation of the ZAFI worm, or else the ZAFI worm hasn't been described accurately on the anti-virus sites. I suspect it's the ZAFI worm slightly modified and cludged together with another worm (BHO based) so that they will reinfect each other as you're trying to clean it. I don't know what the payload or method of infection is. I've only been concerned with cleaning it off, and will leave the rest to the experts.

On my system, it will reinfect the machine from 3 different areas, so that if you clean one or two spots, the third can still reinfect you and you have to start over again. The system I was working on was running XP.

The three infected areas that I noticed:
- Executable in the windows folder
- Executable in the windows/system32 folder
- Browser helper object (DLL) associated with Internet Explorer

The files are randomly named and hav... Read more

I am running English WinXP, version 2002, service pack 1.

My default page keeps on changing whenever I bootup the next day. It would points to a compiled HTML file on my C:\Windows Directory.

I would delete away the .chm file, change the default page, do a reboot to test again, and nothing would happen.

However, when I on the PC the next day, the same thing would happen.

I had installed several SPYWARE programs on my PC, such as SpyBot, bazook and none of them can pick up this problem.

PS : I also note that the very first time I ran HijackThis, there are some 06 errors. I rectified them and the next time i ran it, it came back again.
