Change Wallpaper manually.

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 solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
