  3. Animated GIFs on Desktop, not wallpaper

    I thank you for your reply, and do appreciate your time, but neither of those allow for what I'm asking for.

    DeskScapes 8 is full wallpaper animation, with many other nifty features, but no animated gifs on the desktop.

    Rainmeter can achieve the effect of what I'm looking for with a combination of .png files and a ini setting file to cycle thru individual photos creating the illusion of a gif on the desktop, but again, no animated gifs on the desktop.

    I'm looking for a way to get animated gifs on the desktop, not wallpaper/background.

    HMM that is interesting. I never used that but I do like screensavers. I think for a moving desktop I would follow the advice that jds63 posted.

    http://www.elefun-desktops.com/show-...allpapers.html
    I hope you have better luck than me, I thought about a bought one but then if I didn't like it it was a waste of money,
    so I thought I would try a free one first. I might have to buy one in the end but I still don't know how its set up.
    Thanks for all your help.
