Download: Starter Wallpaper Changer.zip


1. Browse to a wallpaper.
2. Apply it.
3. Log off and log back in.

Background Changer Application did not work for me

Alternative:


Download: Starter Wallpaper Changer.zip

This application did not work for me. Do you have to use a certain file type? Any other suggestions about changing the wallpaper? Still unable.

My domain policy prevents changing wallpaper but i am able to change it with Opera (Opera browser | Faster & safer internet | Free download). Open image in Opera, right click, Use Image on Desktop.

Only problem is that after every reboot wallpaper is reverted but Opera have speed dial and number 12 is reserved for wallpaper
