Change Background, remove or move icons on Desktop WEC2013


Is it possible to change the background in WEC2013, I tried to change via the menu, but it is not working.
Also I would like to know if we can move or remove the icons (Mydevice and reyclebin) from the desktop.

I developed an app running on startup, but we see for about one second the Toradex background and icons, I would like to not see that.


You can replace current background image by editing “wallpaper” string at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Desktop]

To remove icons follow instruction here - Remove icons from the desktop | Toradex Developer Center


In your case I think you could disable explorer.exe and just have your application running?
You could change registry under →




thank you for your help !

Hello, I try to remove icons by removing registry keys and save, but the icons came back. I don’t know what to do…
