Tips to make your Windows 7 wallpapers more appealing
You can customize the interface of your PC by setting cool Windows 7 wallpapers and themes. With a few simple tips, you can get beautiful Windows 7 wallpapers and make them even more appealing.
In an article posted by tech magazine MakeUseOf, freelance writer Tina Sieber presents 5 tips to get the best wallpapers for your Windows 7-based PC.
Set a high resolution wallpaper
If you configure a low resolution wallpaper in Windows 7, the desktop background will look dull. Tina recommends that an image with a high enough resolution and matching aspect ratio should be set as the wallpaper to get the right effect. To know the screen resolution of your computer, right click an empty space on the desktop and click ‘Screen Resolution’. Make sure that the wallpaper you select has a resolution that matches with that of the screen.
Create a wallpaper slideshow in Windows 7
Looking at the same desktop background every day can be quite boring. So, how about setting a slideshow as the wallpaper? Yes, you can select multiple images that change at the specified interval on your desktop. The pics can be configured to change randomly or after a particular time period. Check out the steps to create a desktop background slideshow in Windows 7.
Install animated wallpapers on your Windows 7 PC
Animated wallpapers liven up your desktop and make the interface quite appealing. A word of caution though – some heavy duty animated wallpapers can slow down the computer’s speed as they take up a lot of system resources. Screensavers and videos can also be set as wallpapers in Windows 7.
Clean up your desktop
What good is a beautiful wallpaper if most of it is hidden behind scores of icons? Keep your desktop clean and free of clutter to get a good view of the desktop background. Get rid of the unnecessary files and organize icons in an orderly manner.
