WEBpage as desktop background.





ranzon
Hi,
i've heard that i can use a web page as desktop background.
is this true?
and how can i make it.. i've just got the idea to have notices and reminders on my desktop and wanted too use an webpage as background.
i'm running windows xp professional.. no service pack or anything.
just clean windows xp professional.

please help me <3

EDIT: i found out how to do it..

for those who want to know how:

you just go to desktop properties.
select "desktop" on the tabs on the top.
press the "Browse..." button,
on "files of type" select "HTML Documents"
and just find your file on your hard drive..
press open, and ok..
finished, and you have a html page as desktop background

In case using a online webseite as desktop-background - what about security?

you can't put an online webpage, cuz the webpage should be stored on your harddisk so it is actually offline not online.

Oh yes, you can. Just try and add any http://-adress instead of a local file. You can also tell windows to update at certain times.

Hey, I found this place while searching for desktop memory forum posts. Do you have any desktop memory topics here? It doesn't seem like this particular one actually has any details on the chips but it showed up in google's results...

Sounds cool, however it would eventually drive me nuts.

why bother with such a thing and mess up. u can always do it if u know html.

just create a webpage.html and place it in the windows\wallpaper folder.

in the webpage.html, link it to the website u want as your desktop wallpaper. simple as that.
