These are my favorites. I use 4 different wallpapers depending on what time of year it is, however with the new windows 7 rotating wallpapers I'm slowly adding more to the repetoire.

As you can tell I'm a big fan of oil paintings and video games :)

A few more favorites, not as cool as the above ones though, but worth an honorable mention.

woah those are amazing goLfie, I haven't bothered using a new one since Windows 7 came out because i'm still addicted to the characters backgrounds.

I really like that Yoshi one, gonna have to steal it hehe.

sweet backgrounds guys
Thought I'd stop being lazy and so here's mine!

The website I got them from has every possible resolution you could imagine so I put the link to the image on their site above each picture.

Mine are more realistic, but I really do like the style that GoLfie's backgrounds use.

NICE BACKGROUNDS!

I downloaded all of them and am now rotating them as a set in Windows 7.

Thanks!

Rotating backgrounds? How do you do that?

Configure Backgrounds in Windows 7 to Rotate

Postby shockersh » Wed Jan 27, 2010 2:00 pm

looks like a How-to needs to be written for this one. It's simple tho.

Windows 7:
1 - Press Win+D (clean screen) and Right Click on Desktop and Click Personalize
2 - Click Desktop Background Link on bottom of screen
3 - Put a CheckBox next to all the images you want to rotate
4 - Set the Picture Position and "Change picture every" at the bottom of the screen (I also click Shuffle)
5 - Click Save Changes

That's it.

You can't change the backgrounds? Did you follow my step by step above and select a new background?

Try it the easy way! Most browsers have a groovy little feature: right click on any image you like and select "Set As Desktop Background". Works for me 8)
