Color Desker Surpasses Win7 Wallpaper Changing Functionality

The freeware application Color Desker takes the wallpaper changing functionality the Windows 7 operating system has to offer and takes it to the next level. Not only does it automatically change your desktop wallpaper, say every half an hour or so, it also provides some stunning imagery to use as the desktop background.

On its own, the Windows 7 operating system can take the images you already have, or the few images that come with the OS, and use them as the desktop background; it can also switch from one image to another every 5 minutes, every half an hour, every hour, and so on. Color Desker does the same thing, it can also switch your desktop background – but it also comes with a very nice collection of images to choose from.

After you download and install the Color Desker application, you will see a list of available wallpapers on its interface. From the View menu at the top you can change what you see. The aforementioned menu lets you see the most popular wallpaper, the least used wallpapers, the wallpapers you’ve marked as “loved”, and the ones you’ve marked as “hated”. Just double click a wallpaper to immediately set it as the desktop background.

Color Desker can also take over as your machine’s screensaver. Select “Install Color Desker Screen Saver” from the File menu, then select “Start Screensaver” to get a taste of what this would be like.

Both Windows 7 and the Color Desker application let you manually switch from one wallpaper to another. With Windows 7 you must right click the desktop and select “Next Desktop Background” from the context menu. With Color Desker you must right click the system tray icon and click “Change Wallpaper.”

Sure, Windows 7 themes are a fair match to the functionality Color Desker has to offer. The difference is that that themes come with a rather limited number of images. And while more and more themes are rolled out, more and more images are added to the Color Desker collection. As the number of Windows 7 themes increases, so does the number of images Color Desker has to offer. I would much rather have one central location for all the stunning images I would want to use as the desktop background than have an endless amount of themes.

To sum it up, Color Desker is free, it can automatically change your desktop background (every 5, 10, 15, or 60 minutes), it comes with a very nice collection of images (more are added regularly, just check out colordesker.com), it can replace your default screensaver, and it is free.
