Default dt background...this may sound silly...

But since I have to live with it so many hours each day... I love the look of the azul background when I attempt to "turn off computer" (or restart, whatever)... it "goes grey" to a degree. Is there any way to keep that look 24/7? Thanks to anyone who woul
d let me know. Yeah, yeah, I know, dumb obsession. But it would sure add to work serenity!! Thank you!! You can respond directly to if you like.

Hi,

You may apply the wallpaper on your desktop normally as you do. To apply this wallpaper as the
default wallpaper (so that it appears before you log-on to the machine), fire up the registry editor
(Start/Run REGEDIT) and navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop and on the right pane,
double click on the string value called 'Wallpaper' and type in the exact path to the desired
wallpaper (in your case it would be C:\WINDOWS\Web\Wallpaper\Azul.jpg assuming that windows is
installed on C: drive) Click ok and exit registry editor. Restart your machine to see the change.

I think this would make the wallpaper appear 24/7

with genuine addresses in your newsgroup posts you are sure to be getting
lot's of 'fan-mail' shortly.

As to your problem, without really knowing this for sure, it's MS helpful
way (graphical feedback if you like) to let you know you are 'shutting
things down' (even if it's only for a short while during restart).
Kind'o like in everyday life. When you yourself 'shutdown' for the night you
also turn off the lights, don't you? (I guess)
