For some reason, the selected default wallpaper is always replaced right after boot.

I have already tryed to increase the 'switch wallpaper' setting to 1 day and reduced the amount of installed wallpapers to the minimum (aero wallpaper). No change. :(

There are a few places that manipulate the wall paper (you probably knew that)...What are all the settings on things like

Wallpaper - Duh...
BGInfo
Display

My guess is that you are using the Display script to change the wallpaper??? Right? So maybe something in that script???

I use the wallpaper.script to set the default wallpaper and set in Display.script 'Use previously set wallpaper', like always.
But in the new version, this leads to the default wallpaper showing up shortly after boot, to then being replaced by another wallpaper, before explorer shell starts.

I also have noticed that behavior. Did get the original behavior back by tweaking the settings in the display script. Don't know exactly what I changed. However selecting 'Display wallpaper previously set' was not enough. Here are my currently settings which preserves the original wallpaper.

- At startup automaticly 'switch user' - is not selected

I did a new build. Selected Aero Theme - nature instead of aero.
And now it works again. :crazy:

There's definitly something wrong with the new display.script.

btw. Noticed the watch gadget is broken. :confused1:

Ok, here's the deal.
In version 14, a new UX.exe was introduced. It seems to do some new resizing / resetting.
The result of this is, that the wallpaper will be switched, if the selected Aero Theme folder contains images. (Maybe instead depending only on the existence of the wallpaper folder. Not tested!)

If the selected Aero Theme folder contains no images / does not exist, the switching fails and the default wallpaper will not be replaced.

btw. The wallpaper strech setting is also reset by the new UX.exe. It does not matter any longer, what one selects in the scripts.

:cheers:

I just reproduce, Indeed, seems to be related to the new Ux.
I have trouble to understand why, what happens !!! I'll re-test tonight
For now, it only works if "1. Add only Aero Wallpaper" is defined in addition to "1. Display Wallpaper previously defined".

The New Ux allows to resize themes correctly, but I had not seen before, unfortunately we lose the position of the image.

Under what cicumstances is there a problem with the themes, during resize?
I have never encountered any problem.

OK, it seems corrected,with also the picture position (center, stretch, tile).

not yet on w7pese server xDisplay_v16

I benefitted to review the interface:
There is no longer choice of : "1. Display Wallpaper previously defined","2. Display Theme Wallpaper".
Grouped into theme now : "Wallpaper previously defined",aero,architecture,characters,landscapes,nature,scenes (with other choices visible or not).

While we're on the topic of the interface.
Is there any specific reason, why there is no option 'Copy no wallpaper'?

Then, the background color,... ;)
Already done, choose No wallpaper in the wallpaper script and keep (nothing) it in the display script.

The link above xDisplay_v16 was updated (Slideshow, Picture position and Shuffle image).

PS: The Keyboard switcher has sometimes trouble to show the correct flag right after boot up.
Switching fixes the problem.

Yep, I also saw with the default flag, does not prevent to change keyboards.
I'll look when I have some time.

Thanks for display script.

I moved its launch from AddAutrun (too early to get the language keyboard) to RunOnce, it seems better.
