So not too long ago, the TDSB implemented what seemed to be an “unchangeable” desktop wallpaper. It was originally speculated that it was just an image that was being displayed over the actual desktop. This, for the most part, turned out to be true. Thanks to the TDSB understanding less about how Windows works than the students, we have figured out a way around the overlapping image.

Steps

    Start by choosing a wallpaper. Preferably pick one that is larger than the resolution of the screen attached to the computer.

    Right click the image and click the “Save image as” option. Save the image to your desktop with the name “tdsb.jpg”.

    Note that if the computer is running Windows XP, do the following: Click the start button in the bottom left and select “Run”. In the run textbox, type %systemroot% and hit enter. If the computer is running Windows 7, just open the start menu and type %systemroot% into the search bar at the bottom. If for some reason you do not have access to the “run” feature, simply open up any explorer window (Ex. Home Drive) and type %systemroot% into the address bar.

    Find the image. When you are at systemroot (It will appear as “C:\Windows”), you will have to search for a file named tdsb.jpg. When you find it, replace it with your version of tdsb.jpg. If you cannot find tdsb.jpg, just drag your tdsb.jpg version into the folder and it will still work.
