Change path of where Windows looks for wallpapers

By default Windows looks for wallpapers in the Windows folder. In WinNT one could change this to the environment variable %USERPROFILE%.

To change the path, update this registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion]
WallPaperDir = "C:\My Documents"
