Hi Everthon,

I would like to tell you that active desktop is not a regular feature of window 7 and cease to exist however with the late inclusion of windows gadgets you can have an active desktop feature.

Try the following steps:

1. Download and install the free mini browser gadget from the website

With this you will be able to define a Web page in order to display in the gadget, similar to Active Desktop.

2. Now you will need to set up the gadget in order to get the desired Web page. We can also configure the size & position of the Web page through the gadget settings. Read the gadget’s help for more information on configuring it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Baker
