Hey, just a question


I have deskscapes and I absolutely love it.  Yet, sometimes when I apply a new one, it will only show up on part of my desktop.

I've tried adjusting the settings in deskscapes, stretch, fill, auto, etc but for some this is all that shows.

Also, the background is always the old deskscape image that is now a paused background....

Right click the desktop and click "Refresh". This Should remove the old background. Though Im not sure about whats happening on your computer. Any time I get a video smaller than my screen and it doesnt happen to automatically fit to screen, it will appear in the center and not in the top left corner as you are showing. 


 Have you tried rebooting your computer?

Ya, tried that and also changing the resolution. (Running on a 17.3" laptop with 1920x1080p res)


Not sure if it's one of the other Object Desktop programs causing this either.  Going to try to disable them (uninstall) one at a time.  I currently have them all running.
