    Default IBM users come in and help!

    I noticed a problem with my Thinkpad...

    After I plugged in for projector presentation, the screen display will become smaller so as to accomodate the 1240x768 projector screen. (Not a problem)

    However, after my presentation, I'd naturally switch back to default resolution by pressing Fn+F7 and selecting My Default settings. (Here comes the problem) Everytime I do this, my wallpaper will auto change back to the IBM world map wallpaper, and discard my normal wallpaper.

    Does anyone has a solution to this?? (Using T43, screen res 1400x1050)

    Is there any way to set default wallpaper? Cos I just tried to press Fn+F7 and click "My default settings', and my wallpaper changes...

    use a third party photo management software to generate your wall paper. I use ACDSee.

    btw, you should not have to change your Thinkpad native resolution everytime. I use a T22 and T42, used them for presentation also, I don't have the problem having to change back to my default resolution.

    however, for you problem, perhaps you save your default setting as a custom setting, so when you have to change it back, you change it to your custom setting, may work.

    That's because my T43 is 1400x1050..T42 is 1024x768 IIRC...

    then save your sentting as a custom settings, that should work. everytime you have to change back, you change back to the custom setting instead.
