How to Install your Desktop Wallpaper

After hitting the DOWNLOAD button for your desktop wallpaper, one of two things will happen (device dependent):

(1) A new page will open in your browser so you can save your wallpaper on your device. If this happens, right-click to bring up a menu, select SAVE IMAGE AS, then decide where you want to save it. Typically, this will be your device's DOWNLOADS folder.

(2) Instead, your device may automatically save your wallpaper in your DOWNLOADS folder.

Either way, you should now head on over to your DOWNLOADS folder (see guidance below if you don't know where that is)...

From here, there are a couple of ways to get your wallpaper image to show up on your desktop screen. In most cases, the following method is the quickest & easiest for Windows 10 & Mac, so we’ll run through that first…

Windows 10
• Right-click your wallpaper image.
• Select Set as desktop background.

• Right-click or CTRL-click your wallpaper image.
• Hover over Share.
• Click Set Desktop Picture.


Our wallpaper is designed with all screen sizes in mind. The rectangular shape of the image you’ve downloaded is perfect for popular widescreens. However, the careful design means that, even on squarer screens, the main image content is perfectly placed when in the default Fill screen mode.

If you wish to play around with the settings (e.g. switch to Fit mode to showcase the whole of the rectangular wallpaper image on a squarer screen, or perhaps create a slideshow featuring several images), check out our bonus tips below for help with that as well as what to do if the above steps didn’t work for you.
