A desktop wallpaper is, in its simplest state, the picture background on your computer screen. Read on to find out how to bring Spring to your computer.

Where to begin

You have complete autonomy over what picture you wish to use for your personal computer and may even paint or otherwise create your own background.

It is possible to bring the seasons to your desktop by downloading a free picture from the internet, or taking a photo of a seasonal setting yourself.

Bring in Spring

Spring can be captured on your desktop wallpaper in many forms. Thinking about what Spring means to you is the first step in bringing life to your computer.

For many people, Spring is the growth of new life, of green hills, blooming flowers and new-born animals, such as lambs, rabbits and birds. Images of sunny waterfalls, rainbows and fresh mornings also represent this season.

Why bother choosing a Spring desktop wallpaper? If you are spending any time at all on your computer, the desktop image can have an effect on your mood. A fresh, sunshine image can uplift you, a green based image can relax and focus you and an animal can have a calming effect.

How to do it part 1

Once you have decided what image to use, either download from the site you have spotted it on, or upload from your camera (if taken yourself).

A quick mention on Spring and search engines. Typing Spring into Google Images will produce approximately 464,000,000 results. It is advised that you add flowers/rabbits/lambs/waterfalls etc, something to cut the search at least a little.

To load your image onto your computer screen (for Windows):

Save in an easily accessible folder

How to do it part 2

• Right-click with your mouse on desktop (avoiding clicking any icons)

• Choose properties (or personalise for Vista) from the pop-up menu

• In the display properties box, choose the Desktop tab (or Desktop Background for Vista)

• On the right, there will be a selection of images for you to choose from, (or below Location in Vista) but here we are opting for an image you have pre-chosen

• Click on the Browse box and locate the folder you saved your image in

• Double click it and it will appear in the mini view screen in the Display box (not necessary in Vista, small image of all files in folder appear)

• Click apply to sample image on your desktop (or simply click image for Vista)

• You can alter the position using the Position drop-down menu (or choose one of the three options at bottom of box in Vista) or simply OK if you are happy with the image as it looks.

Conclusion

To summarise, bringing Spring to your desktop wallpaper could not be easier, and can have a positive effect on your state of mind. Follow the quick steps above and enjoy a fresh new image.

I use to change my desktop wallpaper regularly but seldom bother anymore. I'm at my computer for 10 to 12 hours everyday but I seldom see my desktop because I always have multiple apps running. The only time I get a glimpse of my desktop is during boot up and shut down.

Great article! I am constantly changing my desktop image even though I never actually see my desktop. Just knowing I haven't changed it makes me shiver.
