Windows 7: How do I program Task Scheduler to randomly cycle through theme?

You're right. I admit I'm no expert on absurd logic. Do as you wish.

Hey, that was uncalled for! What part of my logic is absurd? You not being an expert? You said there was no way that you knew of--implying that there might be other ways you don't know of, which means A: You aren't an expert, and B: There might be other ways. So how is it wrong to ask if someone else knows another way? I know this is the internet, but still.

No, if you watch it, he's saying do it for each theme, and they will all change. I can't confirm how it will work, as I pick my themes But his video shows he has set the tasks for all his themes, and he claims they all change, not just at a certain time each day. No way to do random at 2 hour intervals I'm afraid.

All right, I have it set up to randomly change themes using this script, but I don't know how to work the arguments to make it change Classic Shell's settings depending on which theme is applied. From Classic Shell's forums, I've learned where the settings registry key is stored, and I have the regedit files ready. I just need to know how to tell it to apply different ones of those depending on what theme it randomly selected (Is there a file Windows makes somewhere telling which theme is applied? Can I use that file as a reference in "arguments"?)
