    I have recently come across a wall paper that I really liked and it inspired me to find out if you could hyperlink pictures on your desktop wallpaper. The picture is 5 panels, all Trapeziums, which I was hoping I could hyperlink each one of the panels to take me to different programmes. E.G. One panel opens MSN, another opens Chrome, ect..

    Is it possibly to hyperlink in this way? Or create invisible shortcuts?


    I found the image by browsing Google and haven't posted it here as I don't have permission to do so; I don't even know who made the picture.

    I think I may have posted this in the wrong section? If so, could a moderator please move it to the appropriate area.

    A 'hyperlink' takes you to a web-page. Anything that takes you to an installed application is just called a 'shortcut'.
    You can't make a shortcut from windows wallpaper or a part of it, and you can't make shorcuts invisible. Only third party software can do that if it's possible at all, and I don't recommend using third-party customisation software anyway. It works by modifying Windows system files, and that has the potential to "break" your Windows installation.
