Are you thinking about to customize or personalize your desktop? Yes, you will learn best way to personalize and make to run smooth your system and create friendly environment for everyone.

Setting the source

BackFlip: Click on the system tray icon to launch BackFlip and click on the Source tab. Now, add an image, an entire folder of images, or the URL of a wallpaper site to the Images Library. The wallpapers in BackFlip’s image library are not stored locally but point to an FTP site on www. The last icon on the menu, which resembles a monitor, allows you to select an image and set it as the current wallpaper. The ‘Pause’ button lets you suspend or continue the wallpaper cycling session.

Changing display mode and effects

BackFlip: Wallpapers can be a mix-and-match of different resolutions. You can stretch the wallpaper to fit the desktop, use the tile option, or place it in the center of your desktop-all using the ‘Display mode’ option in the General tab. You can also choose from six different effects, from the ‘Effects’ drop-down list.

Creating a screensaver

Power ScreenSaver Builder: When you launch the software, you will see four tabs in the main application window-Normal, Media, Music, and Output. Click on the ‘Normal ‘ tab to name the project-eventually, the screensaver will be created under this name-and add a description for your project. Click on the ‘Media’ tab in the main window to add images, Flash files or even MPEG or and AVI movies. These elements will form a part of the screensaver you are creating. Click on the ‘Add’ icon, which allows you to choose images, Shockwave flash or media files, that you want to add to your screensaver. Choose the file and click on the up or down arrow, to move the file up or down the order.
The process of adding music is the same as for adding images-you can add music in any format, ranging from WAV to MP3. You can also set the sequence of songs to be played, when the screensaver is running. You can configure other screensaver settings, such as changing the speed intervals, and enabling or disabling music too on the right side in the tab.

Click the ‘Output’ tab, which has a variety of options to create screensaver files. You can create-.scr files, Windows executable files, screensaver setup files, and even installable files. Ignore the executable file creation options, as choosing to make a .exe file will create an executable file not a screen saver, and the installable files are files that will install this executable to the system. Select either the option to create .scr files or screensaver setup files. Click on the ‘Preview’ button to test your screensaver, before you finalize it. Specify the directory where you want the screensaver to be saved, and click on the ‘Create’ button, to create your own screensaver. Once you’re done, the software pops up a success note. Click OK, and it will open the destination folder where the screensaver is saved. You are now, ready with have your first screensaver.

Clear the wallpaper

WallMaster: If at any point of time, you do not want a wallpaper on your screen, just right-click the WallMaster icon on the system tray and choose ‘Clear Wallpaper’. This will show just the background colour of your desktop.

Chiming at change

WallMaster: WallMaster has an option that allows you to play a sound, when wallpapers change, at specified intervals. To enable sounds, right-click the WallMaster icon in the system tray, choose ‘WallMaster control panel’ and click on Options. In the window that pops up, select the ‘General’ tab, and click on the ‘Play sound when wallpaper changes’ checkbox. You can type in the location of the WAV file or browse the computer to select a WAV file.

Setting the frequency

BackFlip: The General tab in the BackFlip window allows you to set the time interval for cycling the wallpapers-seconds, minutes, hours or days. Just drag the slider, on any of the four ‘Change interval’ options and set your preferred interval.

Cache images

BackFlip: When you add URLs to the image library, BackFlip attempts to fetch the images from the Web site every time it randomizes. Thus, the image takes longer to load. In order to speed this up, choose the ‘Cache downloaded images to disk’ option from the ‘General’ tab.

Stop randomizing

BackFlip: At any point of time if you need to stop the wallpaper cycling, right-click on the BackFlip icon in the system tray and choose ‘Suspend Show’. You can resume the cycling process the same way, by clicking the ‘Continue show’ option.
