Hi guy's
for the last two days I have been work on a re-spin of my Manjaro Desktop
I was thinking about putting my desktop wallpaper in to some thing like my home window or all open windows as a background. I have look at the setting and I can not find a way of doing is. Is this possible? ::)
thank you for any tips give

I don't believe it is. The only way I can think of this working would be if someone created a theme that contained your image as a background and somehow got it to configure right to all of the windows that are running the theme throughout the system.
Do the right thing. Use Linux.

really depends on the filemanager. I know, that caja (MATE's FM) has that feature. But i don't know about others. Install a bunch of FM's and mess around with them, so you can see for yourself:
thunar, pcmanfm, spacefm, caja, nemo, nautilus, dolphin, EFM, ...

I just checked, and EFM17 and upwards is capable of doing that. I don't know if it is possible to run EFM without enlightenment, though, so you might first look into caja.

Also, there are some terminals that allow you for setting backgrounds. usually the very lightweight ones like xterm or rxvt
