Free Windows Wallpaper Background Bitmap Image Files

If you are not familiar yet with setting and changing the windows wallpaper image files, you should print this page to refer to while using. It is OK to do this and there is nothing you can foul up on your computer by changing the background files. The files listed below are sized for use as windows wallpaper background images. If you find that you do not like an image as your screen background, go back into it as described here and look for and set NONE.

FIRST:
Determine what the screen setting is for your computer.
START - SETTINGS - CONTROL PANEL - DISPLAY.
(Shortcut) RIGHT click on the open screen anywhere, LEFT click on PROPERTIES.
LEFT click on the SETTINGS tab, and look in the SCREEN AREA box.
You will see either 800x600 or 1024x768 pixels.
CANCEL out of the properties box once determined.

SECOND:
Select one or more of the .BMP files from the appropriate selection below for your screen size settings.
SAVE the files to your c:\windows directory.

LAST:
To select these files, once saved,
RIGHT click on the open screen anywhere,
LEFT click on PROPERTIES,
Select the BACKGROUND tab, if not selected, and the files you saved should appear in the wallpaper list.
All of the files here begin with the letter "z".
Files for 800x600 end in ....80.bmp.
Files for 1024x768 end in ....10.bmp.
Select a file and click APPLY and OK.
That should set the file as your windows wallpaper background.
You can change the wallpaper file as often as you like.
It has no effect on your computers operation.

Left Click Items to View, Right Click Items to "Save As"
If you have a fast line you can view the images first to decide whether you want to use them or not.
If you have a dial up line, you will have to download them to view anyway, so don't view, do the "save as" to begin with.
Then you can delete the ones you may not want.
This way you don't have to download the file twice.
