Background images on your laptop are an easy way to show off a little bit of your personality, and add some flare to an otherwise ordinary laptop. They are great options when you're tired of looking at that same default background image that was there when you bought your device.

Although many people are under the notion that installing a new background image on your laptop or computer is difficult or time consuming, it's really just the opposite. It will take you around one to five minutes after you've decided on what image to use, and all you have to do is follow the simple steps below.

Step One: Pick Your Background Image

When picking your background image, there is no wrong choice. It could be an image that catches your eyes, or something that represents a piece of your personality. If you are a cat person, for example, you could choose an image of cats or kittens. If your an avid sports fan, you could choose an image that represents your favorite sports team. Or, maybe you just like mountains or flowers or waterfalls. You can choose those, too.

Step Two: Download The Image

Once you've decided which background image you would like to use, the next step is to download it to your computer. Simply click on the download button, and when the options come up, click 'save' or 'save to computer.' Make sure you remember where you saved it to so you can easily find it later. Most images will be saved in your pictures folder or download folder by default.

Step Three: Install The Image

Now that you've downloaded the background image to your computer, you simply have to install it so it appears as your screen saver. Go to the settings folder in your laptop or computer. Click on the icon that reads 'personalization', and you should find a page that shows you all your current display settings. On the left hand side of the screen, select 'background.' Here you will see an option which allows you to browse your computer for a background image you would like to use. Select the one you have just downloaded, and then click 'save' or 'save settings.'

Step Four: Enjoy!

That's it! Super simple, right? Now that you've got your brand new background image installed, you can enjoy it any time you log into your computer or laptop. Feel free to change it as little or as often as you like.
