Welcome to our world! Wallpapercat community is obsessed with making the world a more beautiful place, one desktop wallpaper at a time. Please join us by beautifying your own computer screen with one of our gorgeous backgrounds. You’ll be glad you did!
We update just about every day and we make a special effort to add collections relevant to upcoming holidays and big events, like the Super Bowl, Eurovision Song Contest, or Oscars. Our site is anything but static so it’s worth your time to keep checking back!
In our experience, it’s good to choose backgrounds that correspond to your goals. On your work computer, you might put a motivating quote or a wallpaper of someone you admire in a professional sense. On your home computer you might choose a wallpaper of something that signals relaxation and fun. Of course if you work from home or use the same computer for everything, consider a slideshow or maybe change your wallpaper on the weekend. Have fun! It’s your tool to use to maximize both your productivity and relaxation!
Truth: the hardest part of this process will be choosing between all the amazing wallpapers we’ve collected for you. We can’t help you there. However, once you’ve decided on an image (or several), tap “Download” underneath it/them and you’re on your way. Now get into your System Preferences (under the apple at the top left of your screen) and go to “Desktop and Screensaver.” It’s usually in the top row of stuff, right after “General.” Now forget about “Screensaver” and choose “Desktop.” You should see the image you chose earlier. If things are going awry, however, just touch the “+” sign at the lower left of the open window and that should give you some more options. Once you choose the image, it will happily jump onto your screen so you can check it out. If you don’t like the way it looks, no need to start from square one; you should still see all the available images. Now pat yourself on the back and enjoy!
If your monitor is best friends with some cassette tapes, an answering machine and a Sony Walkman, not to worry! We classify our 4K images as such for those who want to show off their shiny new 4K monitors, but those images will still look fantastic on whatever monitor you have.
First, tell your beloved phone that this is its lucky day. Now, locate the wallpaper of your dreams among our many exquisite collections. This may be the toughest part of the whole deal because there are just so many good ones! You can narrow it down a bit by looking at the images in the “Phone” category. When you’ve made your choice, press “Download” under the image. Now touch any old spot on your Samsung’s screen. This is a shocker: select “Wallpapers.” Now touch either “Gallery” or “My Wallpapers.” You should see the image you got earlier. Now you have one more decision to make, then you can go have a latte: Homescreen? Lockscreen? Or both? End of story!
