Here, is a short article on How to set a webpage as desktop background in Windows 7. Windows 7 does not allow you to set any webpage as desktop background without use of some software. So in this tutorial I used a software called WallpaperWebpage to set a webpage as desktop wallpaper. Actually this software replaces your active desktop with any webpage which you select. Best thing about this software was that it is easy to use and works fast.

After using this software, I was not satisfied with the results, as you won’t be able to see your active desktop icons. You can see the webpage as desktop background, but it consumes all the desktop icon. Once you exit this software, you can see your desktop icons back like it was earlier. The webpage shown as your desktop background will work on your desktop itself, as you can open the links on that webpage.
The best part is the webpage you set as your desktop background runs and updates in real time. So if you setup your Facebook or Twitter account as the background, you can easily monitor your social life right from your desktop. Also, you can setup YouTube as desktop background and play videos on the desktop itself.
