    Flash as Wallpaper

    I created an SWF that is 1152x864 to set as my wallpaper (using Windows 2000/XP). I embeded it into an html file and set that as my wallpaper but the problem is I can't get the normal desktop right-click menu anymore or select more than 1 file by clicking and dragging. Does anyone know of a way to make flash into a wallpaper that will still allow you to get the normal right click menu and select icons normally as well as allow you to click on hot spots in the flash. All help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not that hard to imitate. Just make some random negative claim at Apple or anything else for that matter and then have nothing to back it up.

    Just make your file dimensions a little smaller and right click on the edge to get your ususal desktop drop down.

    Not elegant, but certainly effective.

    If you're really serious about this sort of thing, Screentime has an application for deploying SWF files as desktops:

    use flash wallpaper

    You can use Flash Wallpaper. It is free for personal use and moreover by using a tool like this distribution of your wallpaper would be simplified.

    If you have any questions let me know!
