Heya all. I didn't really want to use Object Dektop etc, cos they seem to be more trouble than they're worth. All I wan't to do it have my html file as desktop wallpaper, with an image map which links to my programs. here's what it looks like : http://www.ruperthaines.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/desktop.jpg The problem is that a) when i click on the links, it opens IE briefly, then offers the open/save dialogue b) it won't even get that far with programs i need command line variables for, eg counterstrike (hl.exe -console -game cstrike). it just comes up with a 'page cannot be displayed' in IE does anyone know how i can the programs to run off my desktop? please?
