Hello Monks

Changing wallpaper on Windows 7 is too cumbersome and I have little experience with Perl, specially in Windows. Can someone guide me on which module should I use and some general steps?

    step 0, check cpan,  [cpan://wallpaper] wallpaper -> Win32::Wallpaper - Modify Win32 Wallpaper

    ppm install Win32::Wallpaper
    or cpan Win32::Wallpaper
    or cpanp -i Win32::Wallpaper --force

    then <c> use Win32::Wallpaper; wallpaper('newimage.type', 'tile');

    If the above doesn't work on windows 7, ask/google microsoft/msdn
