From Windows Wallpaper Wiki

Welcome to the Windows Wallpaper Wiki, an entire wiki dedicated to wallpapers used in Windows versions! This wiki was created in October 2019 and we have created 269 articles so far.

If you want to jump straight into the more interesting articles, see the ones with backstories. If you're bored and just want to view a random page, click here.


This wiki is aimed at documenting as much as possible on Windows wallpapers for those who are interested in them. Rather than spending hours trying to obtain information, you can use this wiki to find out as much as you can about your favorite wallpapers, or even just learn about the history behind Windows wallpapers. The information on this wiki may not be the most important info in life, but you may still find some of it interesting. We also have pages on sample pictures and user account pictures if you're interested in those too.

Want to contribute to this wiki? You can! Please check out the guidelines before you do so. You can also contact me to get access to a spreadsheet for details of Windows wallpapers, which is a good idea if you want to make a page.

Feel free to provide feedback and criticism! If you feel that there are issues with the wiki, please post your feedback here.
