    When using a solid desktop color on XP, I could place a .PNG with a transparent (invisible) background and it would work; this allowed me to change the desktop color without having to change the color of the image's background to match it.

    This doesn't work for me currently; its showing the transparent layer as black.

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

    Can anyone confirm this as a limitation, or explain how to allow transparency in wallpaper?

    (I have confirmed the image I'm using works on XP [the transparent layer is invisible])

    Could you upload the image so I can have a play with it?
