How can I change the wallpaper not from the desktop
'properties' ?
Is there a link that points to a graphic file that the system refers to? How can that link be changed manually?

The only other way to change it is to open the registry and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.  There is a value there called Wallpaper that points to the file you wish to use as your current wallpaper.
