    Question Is it Possible?
    I'm not sure if this is possible but can you in some way be able to make your Mac OSX OS start with a different wallpaper each time. I know this sounds weird but I have many beautiful pictures...

    Is such a strange request possible?


    Thanks very much,

    Tim

    Why not just set the Desktop preferences to change the wallpaper every time you log in? Saves having an extra app running.

    Plus you might get more responses if you include a bit more information in your topic title. I usually don't read topics with this kind of title, other posters may too.

    I judge you when you use poor grammar.

    How exactly would one go about doing that?
