You can't use gif images as a wallpaper, you can use dreamscene but it uses video files not gif files.

You can't use "Gif" images?? Sure you can... I've been using the same animated Gif since I started using Win7..

I just copied it to my "Wallpaper" folder and set it as my background..
Is it still animated?
