How to Fully Customize your Desktop

Customizing your desktop is easy and fun to do. You can change everything from the sounds that your computer makes, to the screensaver that shows up during inactivity. But that's not all that you can customize. Everything from the colors of your windows to the font that displays a program name can also be changed. Your toolbar and icons can even be organized and personalized to your liking. It can truly do wonders for your computer experience.

Before you continue customizing your desktop, make sure that you backup any files that you are going to change, just in case it doesn't work out and you want your old sound(s), wallpaper, icon, and whatever else you decide to change.

Setting your Desktop's Theme

Customizing your desktop theme will liven up your computer, and provide a unique experience every time you use it. It just all depends on how much time and effort they put into making the desktop theme. I have seen some themes so detailed that everything from the icons, to the text are perfectly designed to match the theme. To begin customizing your desktop computer's theme, read below.

1. First, right click on your desktop, and click properties.

2. You should now be under the Themes tab.

3. Now you can choose what Theme you want to use. If you have never added any themes before, then the default Themes should be the only ones there. If you search on the web for "free desktop themes" then you can find more for free. If you really want to get fancy, you should purchase Microsoft Plus!, which has a ton of themes specially made for Windows.

Customizing your Wallpaper

Customizing your desktop's wallpaper is pretty important. Your wallpaper is the color or picture that is currently showing on your desktop right now. Certain operating systems even allow live web content to show up on your desktop, so you can have streaming news, entertainment and whatever else you want. There are tons of free wallpaper's available on the Internet, or you make your own using digital camera photos of your friends and family members. Learn how to change your wallpaper below.

1. First, close all programs and windows that you have open before you begin customizing your desktop wallpaper.

2. Then right-click on your desktop.

3. Select properties from the bottom of the pop-up menu. Then this will bring up the "Display Properties" window.

4. Click on the "Desktop" tab.

5. Then you can choose a background already available on the list, or you can click the "Browse" button and choose an image that you have made or imported from a digital camera.

6. Now, click the position drop down menu, and choose the appropriate setting. Stretch is the best option since it will fit the image to the size of your screen.

7. Then you can click "OK" if all is well.
