Chapter 9. Improving Your Desktop Experi... > Synchronizing Your Web Page Desktop

Synchronizing Your Web Page Desktop

The advantage of placing a Web page on your desktop is that, unlike regular wallpaper, the Web page content can frequently change. The Web page will not change on its own after you place the page on your desktop. Windows stores the page in an offline format, meaning that the Web page contains whatever it contained when you first placed it on your desktop. You can close your Internet connection after placing the Web page on your desktop because the Web page content will already be on your computer's hard drive, as a snapshot of what it contained when you placed the page.

If you want the Web page to be updated regularly, you must tell Windows XP to synchronize the page, or go to the Internet and update the page at specified time intervals.
