How to change your Windows background

A window’s background is an image or set of images that are displayed on the desktop of a computer running the Microsoft Windows operating system. These backgrounds can be static images or dynamic, animated images, and can be set by the user to personalize their desktop experience. The windows background is also sometimes referred to as the desktop background, wallpaper, or desktop picture.

2. Select images, and add a filter to the search query like this example.

3. Select your favorite high resolution image by clicking on it. Then right click on the image and select “Save Picture As”.

4. Navigate to a place on your computer where you can find the image and save it as an image (.jpg, .jpeg, .png, etc). In this example, I will use my Desktop.
