Missing Active Desktop


Recommended Posts

Yes I know it was considered the worst security loophole that Microsoft ever released, but I liked it. Want to know what I liked about it the most?


I liked that I could put animated graphics on my desktop and use them as program launchers. There are a couple ways you can do that now on some versions of Windows but none of them work or operate the same as Active Desktop.


Anyone have any idea of some software that could duplicate this function in Windows 7?

It's been a while since I've heard about active desktop and I vaguely remember that feature you mention. You can pretty much have all the shortcuts you want with Windows 7, as for customizing these shortcuts I really can't say, but most likely there is a way.
