    I just went through the tutorial but it seems like active desktop does not work at al. I put background color as white and put a link in the html and it doesnt show. I also tried to put just my current homepage as my active desktop and all is shows is a white background.

    Also when i turn off active desktop, and add a background image, then turn active desktop back on using my current homepage, i get the white screen again.

    Seems like when active desktop is on the background color overwrites everything

    Try this: Right click on the desktop> Arrange icons by> Uncheck 'Show dektop icons'. See if that works. For some reason I can't have icons and active desktop working together, which is okay cause I don't use icons anyway.:D

    Doing the above steps should solve your problem.

    Go to the little customize desktop > web under your display settings. Then highlight the item that you're trying to make the active desktop and click "Synchronize"
