    Exclamation No setting wallpaper from Chrome Web Browser?

    Another thing annoying about google Chrome is if you want to set a wallpaper you have to save the pictures. In Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox all you have to do to set a wallpaper is right click on the photo and go to "set as wallpaper". But in Google Chrome you have to save the picture, tell Chrome where to save it, navigate through your have drive to where you saved it, then right click it and go to "set as wallpaper". It may not be a big deal to some people but I change my wallpaper often and this gets annoying fast. How could they forget an option that is so simple. Does anyone know if its possible to make this option available?

    It's..not so simple, really. Cross-compatibility is a big issue with backgrounds, cause not only are there three operating systems to support, there's also many desktop environments for Linux that could offer different ways of doing it. As well as things like Windows Blinds that may even affect it on Windows (don't really know about that one though).
    Regardless, to save you a step, you can click the arrow in the entry in the downloads bar (or right-click I think) and select "Open containing folder" to bring up the folder it's in.
    Also you can probably just open the image, cause you sound like a Windows user and I'm pretty sure Windows Picture & Fax Viewer has a "Set as background" button on it somewhere.
