Registry Editing Tips

Wallpaper Position

Windows 95 with Plus installed and Windows 98 offer 2 ways to align your wallpaper - "Center" or "tiled" and "Stretch to fit the desktop". However, there is an undocumented way to align your wallpaper at any position by specifying X and Y coordinates.

Fire up your registry editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Create 2 new strings and call them WallpaperOriginX and WallpaperOriginY respectively With the keys now up, just set the value along coordinate X and Y to position your wallpaper in pixels.
