How often do you change your desktop picture? Do you upload pictures from the net or do you put up your own personal pictures? Do you like nature wall papers or do you put up something else? As far as i am concerned i like to put up nature pictures. I love greenery and flowers. I have a lot of my own pictures and as of now i am using them only. I change pictures almost every fortnight. I change the wall paper whenever i feel the old one is boring and i have had too much of it... Please share with me your views on this...

I have a program that automatically changes my wallpaper out of a folder of files every half hour or so. I like having it change on its own because it spices up my desktop a little bit. Lol. I like to collect wallpapers (I have 200+) so it's easier to just keep collecting them, and they all show up at some time.

Hi friend, i frequently change my desktop background. I like to use celebrity wallpapers and my own edited pictures. Currently my wallpaper is a beautiful picture of Keira Knightley. She is really awesome. Sometimes i use water related wallpapers. Thanks.

I have both a desktop computer and a laptop. I change them frequently when I get in the mood. My desktop has a spring picture of trees and leaves right now, very refreshing. My laptop has a picture of my only granddaughter at a soccer tournament, coming off the field to the stands. I have had a picture of her on it for some time, but have changed her picture from time to time.

Right now we have a pic of Alex the Lion from Madagascar and most likely things will stay that way for awhile!

My current Desktop - My current desktop features an artist's rendition of a black hole.
I change PC wallpaper when I come across a photo/pic I really like and would like to stare at it. I can change wallpaper as often as once a week, but one time wallpaper sat for 3 months on the desktop. * I also have more than one desktop in that I've a double operating system. I have Windows XP Home and Linux Dapper Drake 6.6 on the hard drive. Both operating systems have 'desktops' to decorate. Linux has two user names, that is two desktops for each 'user'. That's a total of three desktops. * Right now, my Linux 6.6 is featuring an artist's rendition of a black hole.

Hello Naseeha, I do not change my wallpaper so often, but I use some random wallpaper changer so it will generate different wallpaper everyday. Because my parents love nature, and according to them it's good for health and refreshment, so I put some beautiful nature picture. for my wallpaper.

I don't use it at all. My s/o is a PC programmer and advised me of how certain things work and can interfere with other things so, I shy away from all of them. But there is a place where you can get moon signs and I have actually thought about trying that one. His PC does the work, mine is for me and my adventures!

I hardly change my desktop wallpaper, in fact I don't use one. I'm using a relatively old computer so it will somehow affect my desktop refresh rate. My window application are always maximize so I hardly see my desktop most of the time. Simple is better and faster for me.

I don't change it at all. I prefer the default desktop wall paper. I don't add images or pictures not to overload my computer because it would work slower. © ronaldinu 2008
