How to use marquee text on desktop in XP

Hello friends. Hope all of you might be reading my posts on my first blog THE NEXT GENERATION. This is my second blog where I'll share tips and tricks about blogging and computers. No cracks, no hacking tricks, only fresh and clean content.
So, starting the first post of this blog, I am going to tell you how to add marquee text in your desktop.
Note: Marquee text is a text which slides/scrolls in the different directions. You can easily create the marquee texts by using html.

Let's start the process:

  • First of all, we need to create an html file in which we will create marquee text. So, to create the html file, simply open notepad and then type this code:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Marquee Text</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <marquee direction="left" behaviour="slide">

    </marquee>
    </body>
    </html>
  • Now, save this file as marquee.html
  • Finally, we have created our simple marquee page. You can change the font color and background color of the marquee text by using <font> and <bgcolor> tags. Now, it's time to show the marquee text on the desktop, so let's start the next steps:
  •  Right click on the desktop and click "Properties".
  •  Display Properties window will appear. Click on "Desktop" tab.
  • Now click on "Customize Desktop" button.

  • To remove the marquee from the desktop, just see the 9th step and delete the added file from the list, then click OK, Apply then OK.
