Hello there, I'm hoping someone has the answer to this disappearing file. I would appreciate some expertise in this matter. Here's the scenario. I have downloaded two small files into one folder...one file being a HTML and the other being an animation file (swf). Together they make up an animated desktop.They are both physically seen in the folder. Now when I go back through the start> control panel> display> desktop/background tab, click on browse, find the folder where the two files are...there are no files present in that folder. Now I'm told that it won't recognize the animation file (swf) but it should see the HTML file...it doesn't. Any ideas ? Thanks. :whistling:

When you browse to the folder have you tried changing the "Files of type...." to html in the desktop display dialogue?

Let me clarify that...File of Types lists...Background Files or All Picture Files. It's one or the other...no mention of HTML files. Am I looking in the right spot?
