This is for iot project and i do not want the explorer bar shown.

I have set value of Shell from explorer.exe to null so it will not run explorer.exe on startup.

I set through registry: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

However at the same time my background color change to black. Is there any way to change the background color without running explorer.exe?

Below is where i set null in registry

  • The desktop windows in Windows has NOTHING to do with the Window's Explorer desktop. Explorer places its folder window of the user's icons over the top of the old Windows desktop. Set the colour in control panel. – Mark Feb 25 at 7:48
