Folder used for selected wallpaper

Postby anonymous guest » Fri Aug 12, 2005 5:38 am

WPC currently stores the selected wallpaper in (drive):\documents and settings\(username)\local settings\temp. (At least on my win xp professional computer, anyway). I would like to change this setting to another folder of my choosing. Is this possible currently (perhaps through editing a settings file or registry key), or is this something that could be added in a future version?

Just my two cents worth.

No, this is currently not possible, because it is saved in the temp-folder of the current user. Doing it this way will make sure that different users won't override the temp-wallpaper of other users, because each user has their own temp-folder.
Why would you want to manually change that setting?

I still would like to see the ability to change the folder in a future version, since you say it is not possible now. As for a reason why, because I do.

Ok, I'll add it to the todo list for a future version. This won't be included in version 3.1 which is released very soon.
