    Background Changer

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    I am looking for a Windows XP Pro background changer.

    So that each time I boot my PC, a new image is used as a background for the desktop.

    Is there a feature lin Windows XP Pro, or is there an add-in that would allow me to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is the Windows XP Creativity Fun Pack PowerToys Wallpaper Changer from Microsoft. I am not sure if it does exactly what you want, the info indicates it changes the wallpaper at set intervals.

    Or even better, get yourself a transparent screen for an infinitely changing background.

    Wassim,
    You should try WEBSHOTS.
    You can download literally thousands of really beautiful photos of many different subjects, then set them to cycle through randomly at intervals that you can determine.
    The basic service is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and you will never get tired of looking at the same old desktop.

    Check it out and download the program at WEBSHOTS

    I recommend it highly.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
