Wallpaper Changer Powertoy...

Ok, I promised I googled this and what not, but I can't for the life of me figure it out...are you able to make it (XP Wallpaper changer powertoy) so it displays random wallpaper images rather than just in order of the file names? Am I missing something completely obvious?



I might go crazy..any help is appreciated.

I made an active desktop that randomly displays a wallpaper. You can also cycle through forward and backward and display another random wallpaper. Few drawbacks though is that I can't get it to resize wallpapers that don't fit my res without distortion and I don't feel like writting the javascript to make them centered and Icons show up with ugly backgrounds under the text on the desktop so I would only use it for an iconless desktop.

If You are proficient with HTML and junk I can send you file after I clean it up a bit.

I'm Back?

Right now I have it so it displays screenshots from dvds as my wallpaper..I thought it would be cool to have it display my favorite movie scenes randomly every so often.
