View Full Version : Display Properties' Background tab Greyed Out



18-03-2002, 04:39 PM
After accidently setting a image as wallpaper in irfanview, I can no longer access any other wallpaper in the Background tab of the Display Control panel.

The buttons are all greyed out.

The other tabs on 'Display Properties' appear to work fine.

i've deleted the irfanview_wallpaper file, and reset the registry key 'Wallpaper' back to 'none', but the Background tab page is still greyed out.

Any help would be good.

Try overwriting the existing background wallpaper by going to a website with a picture, right clicking on that picture and choose 'set as background'.

Then go into display properties again and see if previously greyed out options are available.

All ready tried that Al.

No go there!

Anyone else got any suggestions?
