    Lex on your Desktop

    I have just discovered that I can have <big>Lex</big> on my desktop!
    Try this:
    1] Grab the image you want. I tried with the 'Let's do Lunch' pop-up graphic by right_mousing above the right hand end of the menu bar and selecting "Save Picture As..." and saving as "lunch.gif"
    2] Right_mouse on your desktop, Properties, Background. Browse to find "lunch.gif" then select Picture Display as Center
    3] Lex will now pop up in the middle of your screen!

    Notes:
    You need Active Desktop enabled, if it is not you may be asked if you want to enable it during the above sequence. If it is not configured on your PC, see
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q171/4/37.ASP>Q171437</A> How to Configure the Active Desktop

    You can determine if there is a Lex image available to download by hovering the mouse over his pop-up position. You will see some ALT text appear after a second or two.

    *****
    Plus!
    Lex appears to now be the Lounge favicon.
    Kill your WOPR from favorites, empty your cache, then add the Favorite back in...

    Re: Lex favicon

    From the Main Index view, try:
    Left_click on the IE logo to the left of the "http://www.wopr.com/....."
    Drag the icon along the address bar about 1/2 inch (the mouse pointer takes on a little arrow in a box) and let go. This forces a refresh.
    Does that work?

    Re: Lex favicon

    No idea. Why would you want to reset it?

    You could try using a program called Favorg (it's listed in Software) which allows you to define an icon against a favorite listing.

    Re: Lex on your Desktop

    Have you any idea why it doesn't work when you right-click on the graphic (on the live webpage) and choose "Set as Desktop Item"?

    Re: Lex on your Desktop

    Lex, our Mascot, pops up from time-to-time...normally right above where it says 'Woody's Lounge".
    Cute, green thing..wears either a yellow T-shirt...or a red striped nightshirt with nightcap (as in on his head - or could be inside his tummy...who knows <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>)..can be seen during the day with either a coffee cup/mug or lying around during lunchtime....or sipping a martini or 2 during Happy Hour. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>.
    Just watch out for him...wish he would 'wink' sometimes...but then, I don't think Lex knows how to wink. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, Lonnie. And look!! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I see him up there right now as I'm writing this post! He didn't exactly wink at me, but it was awful close! Why haven't I ever noticed him before!! I just wish he'd stick around a little longer. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Have you seen him having his OJ in the morning? Or eating his lunch or taking his afternoon nap?
