Wallpaper Installation Instructions

Get your computer wallpapers here.

Install for Windows 95 or greater

  1. Click on the size you need (800x600 or 1024x768) of the image of your choice.

  2. Right-click on the large image that appears in the new window.

  3. Select "Set as Wallpaper". Your wallpaper is now in place!

    If "Set as Wallpaper" is not available, choose to save the image and follow steps 3 through 7.

  4. A box will then appear that asks where you would like to save the file. We suggest that you save the file to your Windows directory. If you save it in any other location, please remember the location so you can find it later!

  5. Minimize all programs so you can see your Windows 95 desktop (if you can see the "My Computer" icon, then you're at your desktop!)

  6. Right click anywhere on the desktop. This will open a list of options. Select the "Properties" option. The "Display Properities" box will open. The Screensaver tab should be at the front of the window.

  7. Select the image you just downloaded from the list of images available as wallpaper. You may need to scroll down in this box to find the image. Clicking on the image should show a small preview picture of the wallpaper in the simulated computer screen.

  8. Click OK. Your wallpaper is now in place!

Install for MacOS 8 or greater

  1. Click on the link to the image of your choice.

  2. Now save the image to your desktop from the prompt.

  3. Open the "Appearance" Control Panel.

  4. Select the "Desktop" tab.

  5. Drag the image on top of the Control Panel.

  6. Click the "Set Desktop" button, and your wallpaper is now in place.

(If you are using an MAC OS earlier than 9, you will need to follow these instructions: By default Mac OS 8 installs a folder called Sample Desktop Pictures in the Apple Extras folder on your hard drive. After downloading your wallpaper selection, place the file in the Sample Desktop Pictures folder. The Desktop Picture Control Panel allows you to select and activate the wallpaper image that you have downloaded. (example: elvis_68montage.jpg) To get to the Desktop Picture Control Panel look under the Apple inside the Control Panel folder. Within the Desktop Picture Control Panel click the "Picture" button and then click the "Add Picture/Remove Picture" button to make a selection (pick the image you just downloaded.) Click the "Set Desktop" button and you're done!)
