    Animated GIF as a desktop background

    Hi,
    I want to make a animated gif background in my Vista operating system. but have no idea on how to set it. I know it works fine in Windows xp but Vista is trying to make it self difficult.

    Any help would be appreciated!!

    If you have vista ultimate you could convert the animated gif to a video file of some sort and set it as a dreamscene. I have never tried this but i think it should work.

    There is also a hack out there to get dreamscene working on non ultimate copy's of vista. I applied it on my laptop and it works great

    you can make the Animated gif. Install any of gif maker software or use the adobe image ready. its easy to create Gif. and save into your computer and make a HTML file and call that gif into your HTML code and save. then go to my computer Desktop property and click Background browse that HTML file. click OK. there you go. you can see the animated background.
