The easiest way to keep your desktop interesting and new is definitely to have it change wallpaper automatically. I personally have a large collection of lovely wallpapers and enjoy changing them out on my screen.
Thus, I’ll teach you 3 ways to have Windows 10 automatically change wallpapers, whether you’re a desktop wallpaper enthusiast like me or you just want to make your computer’s screen look nicer. Let’s look at it.
How to Customized Windows 10
This guide will assist you in customising and personalising Windows 10 so that you can have a personalised experience.
Method #1 Windows 10 Native
A slideshow feature built into Windows can automatically switch your background after a predetermined amount of time. It is necessary to download the wallpapers first because this feature only works with your personal collection of wallpapers.
- Windows 10 only accepts a single folder containing wallpaper collection. So first, put all your favorite wallpapers in a single folder.
- Now move to Windows Settings > Personalize > Background. Here click on the drop-down menu below Background and select Slideshow.
- Click on the Browse button below and select the wallpaper collection folder you created.
- To set the interval, click on the drop-down menu below the Change picture every heading and select the required interval (ranging from 1 minute to 1 day).
An explanation of how to use this feature is provided below:
Method #2 Using third-party apps
After the predetermined interval, your desktop screen will now automatically change to a fresh wallpaper.
1. John s Background Switcher (JBS)
Another option is to utilise a specialised third-party programme that will automatically download and change your background. Two of the top tools for this purpose that are also free are given below:
JBS is my preferred option due to its straightforward working and interface. It comes with various preset setups that don’t need any configuration to get you going. Simply choose the set, and captivating wallpapers begin to appear.
You can acquire wallpapers from Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, SmugMug Images, Vladstudio, Pixabay, and a few other places if you want to make your own sources for downloading them.
Together with these sources, you can also include your own collection of wallpaper.
The option to add any media RSS effectively enables you to get wallpapers from any picture websites, including DeviantArt and Behance. It’s interesting that each resource offers other ways to obtain the necessary wallpapers, all of which, I must say, are quite customised.
For instance, you can retrieve images from Flickr based on a specific time frame, tag, phrase, person, organisation, or even your own Flickr photos.
The picture mode choice, which offers you complete control over how the wallpaper is applied, is another feature I truly like. Using many photos, you can crop, stretch, scale, and even create collages and montages. You can choose an interval for changing wallpapers between 10 seconds and 7 days.
- Easy to use.
- Supports reliable sources along with RSS support.
- Dual monitor support.
- Default preset to get you started.
- Simple, but limited in features.
The best part is that it supports multiple monitors and has options specifically designed to enhance your dual monitor setup.
BioniX has far more features and customization options than JBS. But, in my opinion, it can be a little challenging to operate and is probably most effective in the hands of an experienced user.
The user interface is a little clumsy and overbearing, and I might even say that it isn’t very welcoming. It took me a few hours just to get the hang of the programme and begin adding wallpaper sources.
If you can deal with the interface, then it sthe most robust application for manage desktop wallpapers. You can manually enter the URLs of websites from which you wish to download images or use Flickr Bulk Downloader to get wallpapers from Flickr.
This method does provide you more control over the specifics of what you want, but it is also a laborious effort.
- Astonishingly customizable.
- Can add images from any website on the web.
- Day/night to show light or dark wallpapers at the respective time.
- Automatically rejects bad wallpapers.
- Get images from public webcams.
- The interface is a bit difficult to use.
- Adding wallpapers sources requires more manual intervention.
You may apply effects to all wallpapers, get day/night wallpapers based on time, obtain dynamic webcam wallpapers, dedicated shortcuts, automatic categorization, filter to reject bad wallpapers (low resolution), and much more, to name a few of its special features.
Method #3 Using Bing
Dedicated pause and play buttons are available to begin and pause wallpaper switching for both of the aforementioned tools. These buttons can be used to manage the wallpapers after you’ve added the necessary materials.
Bing is renowned for its Daily Background Picture, which changes the homepage’s background picture each day. You’ll probably agree that Bing’s daily wallpapers are excellent because so many people only use it to view them.
If you think the Bing backdrop photos are lovely, you can also download them to your computer. You may update your wallpaper with the most recent Bing Daily Background Picture as soon as it is updated by using theBing Wallpaper.
Ubuntu Desktop Wallpapers
Install the Bing desktop software after downloading it. Check the option next to “Make the Bing homepage image your desktop backdrop” after the installation is complete. More options are available for you to check or uncheck as you like. That’s it; the Bing Daily Background Picture will now be your desktop background in a short while.
To sum it up
Many people are still using outdated operating systems, despite the rising popularity of common ones like Windows and macOS.
Your desktop should be kept clean using just these three techniques. I should add that frequently changing wallpapers willaffect the battery timing of your laptop. It’s best to disable or at least slow down automatic wallpaper switching if your battery is low.
