Desktop Background Wallpapers For Windows

What if everything had been plain white? No other color, no pictures, just white? Things would have been boring then. Vibrant colors add excitement to life and make you feel alive, be it the color of your walls, your dresses or your desktop. And when combined with an image, things start appearing even better.

Colorful desktop backgrounds are digital images that are used as decorative items to beautify your desktop. These images, either still or live, make your desktop look lively and fantastic. You can upload all sorts of pictures as your background, be it of a lake, a beautiful landscape, sky-soaring building, or any other thing. Its best part is that you can personalize your desktop by uploading your own picture so that whoever uses your laptop knows who the laptop belongs to.

Brief History of Desktop Backgrounds

Desktop backgrounds have been given a lot of names since they were created. They are called wallpapers, backgrounds, displays, and a lot more. However, the most commonly used word ‘wallpaper’ is derived from Microsoft Windows.

Desktop backgrounds have been used since 1975. Named as Officetalk, it was a trial system launched by XeroxPAC. Since it was the first wallpaper to be presented, it had only gray dots similar to that of a dot matrix. Wallpapers in those years were only black, white, and gray in color as there were no color monitors available.

Soon after color monitors came into the market, good pictures with high-quality pixels gained popularity. These days, three-dimensional images are seen as desktop wallpapers, making the screen look livelier than ever.

Microsoft Windows XP Default Desktop Background

Those who have used Microsoft Windows must have seen its default wallpaper known as “Bliss”. Controversies of it being fake hold no reality as the picture, clicked by Charles O’Rear in 1996, is that of Sonoma County, California. Later the photographer sold the photo to Microsoft before showing it to anyone else, which the company found to be the best for their desktops.
