How do I set the desktop background on Windows from a script? from 2008 has 8 answers,
- the OP usercard shows the OP user name but not a link to their profile.
- It hasn't an accepted answer.
- none of the answers fully address what was asked by the OP as all missed the part related to "some kind of scheduled task".
- Some answers are recommending software.
- Some answers are about command lines
- Some answers are asing files to handle command lines, one use a .bat file another use a .ps file.
- One answer is about using a vbs script.
- One answer is about using Python.
It's not clear that most of the answers nowadays works with Windows XP, the version of Windows mentioned by the OP and correspoing to the versioned tag used: windows-xp.
I don't know what is the stand of SU in regard old questions about outdated versions of Windows getting answers tested on newer versions instead of the version specified in the question.
I'm wondering if
it should be closed as seeking recommendations and
if there are better tags than the current assigned to the question:

While I was searching about how similar questions were tagged, I found some that might be duplicates. The purpose of adding these questions here is just to help regarding the tags
While non of these questions includes tags related to the Windows registry, the question in focus mentions that the OP used a script to modify a Windows registry key. Several answers having a script, what the script do is to modify the registry.
Considering the above, I'm wondering if the windows-registry should be added.
