Hi Guys

The reason you can't use active desktop in windows vista is because it don't have it. Microsoft missed the wagon when they was re-designing windows. They forgot to make the back backdrop feature read GIF and HTML formats. In which is needed to run active desktop. They made it only read jpeg anf bit map real swift Micro real swift. This is because Microsoft enginers are hell bent on thinking that all window users only have the need for viewing picture and videos and the heck with the rest. yes microsoft is picture and video happy. Thats why they diden;t ad the ability for any other formats viewing. except for its browser. Real swift Micro real swift.....

    Well, Vista...here's another suggested solution:save the image to your computer... then go to your bootup screen (desktop) and right-click on a black space; select "personalize" then select the "personalize background"; select "browse"; then select your new image. Hope that'll work!

I HAVE NOT YET DISPLAY WALL PAPER WHEN I SWITCH ON AGAIN


Hi rajkumarbalu

Thanks for you enquiry and sorry to hear you are having problems. Windows Vista removes wallpaper if you have not activated Vista yet. Have you activated your OS (Operating System) yet?

If you have activated your OS then use system restore to go back in time.

I hope this helps you and it all works again, please message me if this does not work.

All the best, Phil
