    Hi, I have a question about displaying web pages on the desktop. I've attached a pic to show what I mean. I have 3 different html files on the desktop. The only way I can see that you can have these displayed without seeing the black background of the html file is to set your desktop color as black with no picture ro just something in the center. I've changed the desktop picture to show what I mean by the black around all of the webpages. I would like to know if it is possible to make the black part of the webpage transparent so that the background shows through. Also I noticed that when I have active desktop on the icons text background can no longer be transparent. Does anyone know the way around these 2 problems??? Thanks

    HTML files cannot be made to be transparent, you would have to include the background as part of the HTML and make them all one file, using tables or div tags to make it work.

    What about the transparent icon backgrounds? Is there a way to fix that?

    Try changing the color behind your wall.

    Right click desktop
    Properties
    Desktop
    Color

    Make it match the background color of your HTML file.
