PDF isn't that great a way to save something for distribution, as someone like myself might not have MS Office or OpenOffice.

But you can find another tutorial of it here:
Start Menu Button - Change

But I'm sure another one won't hurt anything.

Ooka, sorry about that. I thought the whole point of pdf is they are cross platform and the reader is free from Adobe.

Thanks Ooka & Airbot for the other links. There is some really great info out here. I'll have to do a lot more searching. Sorry for posting something that has already been touched on.

Yeah, well, I don't really mean they're bad, but I'm saying if you would have converted the tutorial to BB Code and just posted it here, it'd be easy enough for anyone to read it. :P

I have always wondered why folks keep using a trial version of another resource hacker when ResHacker was out there - now that you have used it my suspicions are confirmed - that it does still work even with W7.

Great write up.

I believe it doesn't work for 7 x64 which is why. BTW sergiogarcia9 posted a tutorial for changing the start button a bit back

...anyways it is always glad to see a new member come aboard and start delivering content for the forum. Welcome aboard indeed

A wallpaper changing button on the desktop?
Does anyone know if there is a way to create a button on your desktop that will change the wallpaper of the desktop? Or even better perhaps, cycle through a different wallpaper for each click of this button, where you can add as many as you want, for an Easter Egg perhaps for a theme for Win 7?
