Don't like the position of your desktop
wallpaper, offset or is it in the way. Well there's a
way to set it texactly where you want..
First, before editing your registry
remember to always back it up first, just incase you do
something wrong. The registry when modified is an
instant change and cannot be undone.
BACK UP REGISTRY: So to open the
registry editor click on "START",
"RUN", then type "REGEDIT" (No
speech marks). The registry editor will now open, click
on "FILE" then "EXPORT". From the
save window that appear type in a file name (ie
regback.reg), now click on "SAVE". Your
registry has now been backed up.
CHANGE POSITION: Now on the left hand
panel click on "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" then
"Control Panel" and then "Desktop".
Next search for "Wallpaperoriginx" (horizontal
offset) and "Wallpaperoriginy" (vertical
offset) in the right hand panel. If they are not present
then simply create them by doing the following:
Right click on "DESKTOP"
select "NEW" then left click on "STRING
VALUE". Name the new string value in right hand
panel as "Wallpaperoriginx".
Repeat the process and then name the 2nd
value as "Wallpaperoriginy". Exit registry
editor and reboot windows.
After reboot return to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control
Panel/Desktop" in the registry editor, and set the
values as required by your photo or image. The image is
offset from the center of your desktop, so you can use
positive and negative values. The value is rated in
distance by pixels.
