Windows looks for desktop files under the folder desktop (Documents and Setting/<username>/Desktop) right? Is it possible for me to change that? I've found a reg key under: HKey_Current_User->Software->Microsoft->Windows->CurrentVersion->Explorer->UserShellFolders and then there is a key Desktop which has the value "%UserProfile%/Desktop" Would I be able to change this to the required folder and the desktop would update itself? Thanks. I am using Windows XP Home.
