Attractive Screen Savers and Pictures for Your Computer

Attractive Screensavers and Pictures for Windows Desktop

What happened to all those nice Windows wallpapers?

One of the first things I noticed when my computers upgraded to Windows 10 was that most of the high quality pictures available for my computer desktop had disappeared.

Earlier versions of Windows had come with an extensive library of high resolution pictures. When Windows 10 came along, I had to go into Microsoft and download those pictures one at a time.

Up until now.

This month I was able to acquire large library of high quality photographs and images very similar to the variety that used to come with Windows, maybe even better.

At this time I have a collection of approximately 1000 desktop pictures that can be incorporated in the Pictures folder on any computer. These are widescreen pictures that display nicely on most computer monitors in use today.

I have these organized in general "Theme" folders. I think the most popular among friends and neighbors around here will be the "Animals" "Cars" and "Nature" themes. (Other themes include Anime, Celebrities, Computer, Creative & Graphics, Games, Movies & TV, Music, Space, and other General theme varieties.)

It's possible to set up your computer either to show a single background picture or to rotate pictures as a full-size slideshow.

If you would like to add some or all of these to your Windows collection, they take up only about half a gig of space and will easily load onto almost any hard drive without any space limits. Most computers will load these pictures in a short amount of time.

Next time we see each other for an appointment, simply indicate if you would like to add these to your Pictures and I'll bring along what I need to copy them over for you.
