Hi everybody,

How do I find the user's wallpaper image without PrintScreen under WPF and also get path of the image from hard disk that setting to the current user desktop image?

Thanks in advance ;)

I don't believe WPF offers a way to manage the wallpaper, but you can get/set the location of the wallpaper image in the registry at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper

To manipulate the registry programatically, see Microsoft.Win32.Registry[^]
