How to manually edit/manage active desktop items
Posted on 2004-11-24
I would like to manage my Active Desktop items manually and primitively (e.g. using notepad or some other ). Can anyone tell me, please, how I can add an item to the Active Desktop **WITHOUT** using regedit, or Control Panel (including Desktop Properties/Active Desktop via right-clicking the desktop), or clicking 'Set as Desktop Item' in IE?
This is pretty much a challenge question. Points will NOT be given for anyone saying that it cannot be done!!
OS: Windows 2k Terminal
Active Desktop is enabled and one desktop item (a single JPG image) already exists and is visible/movable.
Desired: additional desktop item consisting of an HTML file that I have ready (call it C:\file.html)
I wanted to assign 750 points to this but they wouldn't let me so I don't mind adding points if the answer is contorted (read 'clever') enough!
