    The 'Desktop' tile you create with OblyTile is merely a shortcut that brings you to the desktop; what happens on the desktop should not be related.
    Just make sure you choose one still image to represent the desktop on the tile.
    The tile will not switch images, if that's what you're getting at.

    Yeah, that's what I was hoping it would do. So it does not perfectly replicate the original tile, so my problem remains unsolved. Is this perhaps a function you could consider adding?

    Doesn't windows automatically create a temp-file of whatever image is used as the desktop background? If we could find it and select it in OblyTile, wouldn't it then act as the original desktop tile?
