What preference to change Workbench background?

Post by amigasociety »

For the life of me I can't find the preference to change my main bootup Workbench background.

Where would that be?

I have found where I could change it for my separate OWB Window Screen I have open but not the main Workbench screen.

Thank you. I did not see the picture box in that window and kept going right in one eye out the other.

Thanks

Better get your eyes checked, then. They are supposed to be Write-Only ;-)

Eyes - write-only: Normal function is for visual stimuli to enter the eyes from the outside, and for nothing to exit from the eyes to the outside. Although of course lyricists have for ages claimed the opposite, i.e. that it is possible to read stuff in a person's eyes. And then there is the matter of tears ...

Wow, too deep for me.

Reminds me of what one would talk about like in the pot scene in Animal House. :twisted:
