asked on

using javascript to save a background image as desktop wallpaper

Hi

I have a website and want to allow users to click on the main background image and be able to set this as their desktop wallpaper.

Is this possible with javascript?

thanks

ok thanks .

If it was a hardcoded image rather than a backgound image would this make any difference?

Thanks
No, the thing is, that it's not possible to modify the OS configuration / registry of the users enviroment.
So it doesn't matter wich kind of object you are serving, if you can't manipulate the desktop wallpaper settings.

Or in FF: Right click on page, view background image, set as desktop image
Works just fine
hi,

ok thanks. Do you think it is possible to just save the image with javascript then? Rather than saving and setting as wallpaper?

Cheers
Paul
