Disable Active Desktop

Disables/enables Active Desktop.

Active Desktop allows users to add HTMLcontent to the desktop, along with some other features. HTML could be added both in place of the regular wallpaper and as independent resizable desktop items. Items available on-line could be regularly updated and synchronized so users could stay updated without visiting the website in their browser. This function was absent from XP Professional x64 Edition and all subsequent versions of Windows.

If you, like many, do not use Active Desktop technology, you can turn it off, it will save computer resources.

System reboot: required

OS: XP
