You can make owning a computer an enjoyable, positive and personal experience by making your computer look good. It is a hobby of mine to find ways that when I turn on my computer the interface I work with, such as the Windows Wallpaper, is an expression of me. In today’s world of personal computers the number of FREE third party apps out there to customize your computer are virtually unlimited.
One of the first places to begin in the customization process is the Windows Wallpaper. The Windows Wallpaper is the interface or background image you see the most when using your computer or even when your computer is setting idle. It is probably one of the first things a beginning computer user learns to change; however, I have found most people will change their wallpaper image and leave the same image background in place for years. BORING!…
Walyk Wallpaper Changer is a FREE utility that you install on your computer that will help you manage an entire collection of wallpaper images and will automatically change your wallpaper background at time intervals that you dictate. For example, here at Christmas time I collected (downloaded) numerous Christmas wallpaper backgrounds and placed them in a folder on my computer. By using Walyk Wallpaper Changer, pointing it to my collection of Christmas wallpapers, my windows desktop wallpaper changes every 30 minutes to a different Christmas wallpaper scene. I can attest this application has made my usage of my computer more enjoyable, relaxing; and, in my case has kept me in the Christmas spirit (even after a trip to Walmart).
