Is it possible to set a desktop background using batch? Meaning have a batch file open on start-up and then change the background to a jpeg of my choice? For example, my school's pcs are not set to retain the background after log-off. I always have to set my UNIX background every time I boot up, as does everyone else. I think it would be a nice feature to have a batch script move itself to /startup and then start and change the background.

they show how to hack the registry to change the background. Be wary of that hack, because I believe it might actually be in: HKEY USERS\ .DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
