Do you want to change your desktop background? then this article is for you

How to alter the desktop backdrop in Windows 11 is described in this article. Preloaded backgrounds, your own photos, or a solid color are all options.



There are three kinds of desktop wallpapers supported in Windows 11, and Settings is how you access all of them.

  1. Right-click an empty area of the desktop and select Personalize.

    Note: Or, if you’d rather use Settings, type WIN+i and then go to Personalization.

  2. Select Background, and then choose Picture, Solid color, or Slideshow.

  3. If you chose Picture, select one of them from the list, or choose Browse photos to select a different picture. You can also right-click an image to pick which monitors to use it on.

    Note: The color option instead shows a table of colors and a Custom colors button you can use to find the exact color you want the wallpaper to be. This is how you change the desktop background from black to white, or from any other color to a different one. For a slideshow, Windows will automatically cycle through images in your Pictures folder, but there is a button there which lets you choose any folder on your computer. There are also settings you can edit, like defining a schedule to automatically change the background every so often and a shuffle toggle.

The steps described above are easy enough to understand, but there’s a much quicker way to change the desktop background if you want it to be of an image. Instead of opening Settings and navigating through the menus, you can apply the desktop wallpaper directly from the image you’re wanting to use.

After downloading the picture you want to use, or locating one already saved to your computer, there are two methods for getting that picture to be your desktop background:

  • Right-click the file (don’t open it) and choose Set as desktop background.
  • Open the image, right-click it (or open the menu at the top), and then go to Set as > Set as background.
