    Desktop Backgrounds!

    Desktop Wallpapers can be a fun way to spice up a boring computer screen, but Windows sometimes isn't very friendly on placement of the pictures. Normally you can only center, tile or stretch the image. Often the picture is smaller than the actual desktop screen size and tiling or stretching makes things look wonky. Luckily with a bit of registry tweaking we can place our desktop pictures anywhere we want.

    First load up regedit (Start -> Run -> regedit then press ok) and follow this path HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Control Panel -> Desktop. From there create two new string values Wallpaperoriginx and Wallpaperoriginy. It should be obvious but changing the Wallpaperoriginx changes the pictures horizontal position and Wallpaperoriginy moves the image vertically.

    Simply enter the values where you think the wall paper will look best, save and exit (you may need to reboot). Now your wall paper should be located where you said it should be. =)
