How To Make the desktop wallpapers change automatically via RSS feeds
 
This is very interesting thing which we are going to see now. We generally take feeds from our favorite blogs so that we can know what and all is happening on the blog. Now the new operating system has got the feature where the wallpapers can also be subscribed using RSS feeds.

To make your desktop wallpapers change we are giving a small code. You can just copy/paste the code in a notepad.

[Theme]
DisplayName=Nasa
[Slideshow]
Interval=1800000
Shuffle=1
RssFeed=http://www.nasa.gov/rss/image_of_the_day.rss
[Control Panel\Desktop]
TileWallpaper=0
WallpaperStyle=0
Pattern=
[Control Panel\Cursors]
AppStarting=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_working.ani
Arrow=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_arrow.cur
Crosshair=
Hand=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_link.cur
Help=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_helpsel.cur
IBeam=
No=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_unavail.cur
NWPen=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_pen.cur
SizeAll=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_move.cur
SizeNESW=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_nesw.cur
SizeNS=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_ns.cur
SizeNWSE=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_nwse.cur
SizeWE=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_ew.cur
UpArrow=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_up.cur
Wait=%SystemRoot%\cursors\aero_busy.ani
DefaultValue=Windows Aero
Link=
[VisualStyles]
Path=%SystemRoot%\resources\themes\Aero\Aero.mssty les
ColorStyle=NormalColor
Size=NormalSize
ColorizationColor=0X6B74B8FC
Transparency=1
[MasterThemeSelector]
MTSM=DABJDKT

Let us understand what is there in the code. In this example we have taken the feeds from the nasa’s image website. The line where it says RssFeed=http://www.nasa.gov/rss/image_of_the_day.rss means that the Rss feeds have been taken from the website that is nasa. Anyhow both the name and the RssFeed can be changed according to the user’s choice.

To change the desktop via feeds follow the below steps:

Step 1: Save the file with the extension .theme.

Step 2: Now close the file and you can see that a new theme icon will come up against the file you saved. Double click on the file.

Step 3: A window will come up select Download attachments.

Step 4: Right click on the desktop and select personalization.

Step 5: In the window that will open you will be able to see your theme there. Select your theme
