    Dave: Can you briefly tell me the difference between freeware and shareware? Is it just that freeware is free and shareware you have to pay for? Thanks.

    Yes Freeware is free and usually comes with little restrictions. Shareware sometimes will allow you to download a full version of it for a trial but many times will be stripped of some of its capability or is time sensitive and will disable after a period of time unless you pay them the money.

    To dn/load,just click: Télécharger maintenant

    Put your pics in a folder you choose,browse to the folder by right clicking the toolbar icon,then 'setup'. Click 'ok' then 'ok'. It will change pics from the schedule you choose from every minute to every 6 hours or when you left click the icon or reboot. Goes randomly to another pic in the chosen folder.

    Totally free with no spyware,popups or nags...:)

    Oh yeah,,go to Diplay Properties>desktop tab(in XP) to center,stretch or tile your wallpaper...

    Ridgerunr, Thank you. However, perhaps you can answer a question. I have downloaded and installed application. I have set it to change wallpaper every five minutes. But it only changes wallpaper at startup/reboot. When I click on desktop properties/desktop it shows a new wallpaper every five minutes, but as I said, the wallpaper on the actual desktop only changes at startup/reboot. Any thoughts?
