How to surf your favorite website directly from your desktop?

Out of millions of websites that are available on the internet today, only a handful succeed in becoming a part of our daily surfing activity. There are many favorites such as Google, Facebook, Apple or CNN, and we each have our own – the URL’s which are first or second to be typed into the address bar at the beginning of every websurfing session. Sometimes, “our very special” websites are even granted the privileged position of browser’s homepage. Yet, they will always remain at least “one click away” from us.

The cool trick, we are bringing to you in the video below, will walk you through the simple steps of how to set your favorite website as your new computer’s wallpaper. This will allow you to access and surf the website directly from your desktop, exactly as you would do using a regular browser. (Note: Does not work on Vista)

I rewrote for you the HTML code as it appears in the video:
——————————————————- copy ————————————–

<iframe src=”ADD THE URL OF YOUR FAVORITE WEBSITE”(i.e width=100% height=100%>

——————————————————- copy ————————————–

    Любое искусство, особенно нетрадиционное, всегда вызывало ожесточенные споры. Думаю, оно просто имеет право на свое существование, вот и всё!

    Hello Jak and Jay, thank you for visiting.

    @Jak: It works with all Windows operating systems but not Vista. If it is done step by step as above, then it should work just fine.

    @Jay: We checked it several times, and it is working for us. The path name needs to be a valid url with a colon followed by two diagonal top right slashes, such as: “”. Based on your comment, the error message mentions that you have written “http:\\”.

    Try this again, hopefully it works out. If it does not, we would be more than happy to assist you further by email.
