    Desktop magic

    My favorite magazine, Maximum PC has has article on their web site that provides a tutorial for using HTML to modify the desktop.

    Looks like it will be a fun project.

    I am probably a little slow on the up-take. I am only now finding out some of the modifications that you can accomplish on the XP desktop. I'm assuming you old timers with XP have know these tricks all along.

    I have now imbeded a fuctional Techzonez onto the Desktop.



    To do it Open Display Properties>Desktop tab>Customize Desktop>Web Tab>New then type in the URL you want on the desktop.

    When I minimize all my aplications it takes a while to draw the wallpaper. IT is like curtain going down slow > I wonder if that will make if slower

    I didn't notice it running slower. Try it. If you don't like the results, you can go back to the beginning by unchecking a box in the properties area.

    I had been testing it. I didn't see it slower either. Have to check when a long time pases since I see the desktop (this is usual with me) since then it has to pick it up from the HD I guess (pagefile)
