The classic (hard) way to change the background wallpaper using the Personalization function from Windows


To change the background wallpaper on Windows takes a little more time than changing the background wallpaper with BioniX and it has few other disadvantages too (for example, the time interval is not so flexible as it is on BioniX).

Here is how to change the background wallpaper on Windows 7/Vista:

  • Right click on a clear area of your desktop. This will show a pop-up window.
  • Click on Personalize. This will open a new window with many options. Here you can choose a theme to set as wallpaper (those themes are created by Windows or you may create one by yourself). A theme is a category of images that changes.
  • Click on Desktop Background. Now you have on the screen another window with settings for your current wallpaper (position settings, picture location).

Unfortunately, Windows allows you to change the background wallpaper in 10 and 30 seconds; 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes; 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 hours and 1 day. But what if you want to change your background wallpaper every 2 minutes, or 10 hours, or, why not, every 15 seconds? There are two solutions: you can change it manually (the worst way - takes too much time), or you can use BioniX Background Background Switcher (the easy way).

Change the background wallpaper on Windows manually


It is easy to change the background wallpaper manually but it has a major drawback: to change the background wallpaper at a specific time you will waste too much time. For example, if you want to change the wallpaper every 10 minutes you will waste at least 10 minutes per hour (2 minutes on every wallpaper change) which means 4 hours per day. Our recommendation is to let BioniX Background Background Switcher do this job for you so you can use those 4 to do something else.


You can set on your desktop background any kind of images: family, travel, holidays, animals, pets, favorite vacation, celebrities, or abstract arts that you admire. Your background wallpapers can refer to specific your mood or the time of year (holidays (like Easter or Christmas), summer or winter). If you are tired of the plain desktop background and simple images, you can set animated wallpapers on your desktop like rain shower, screen bubbles, billowing wind, cartoon characters as flash and others.

To customize your computer's desktop background you can choose personal images to set them as background wallpaper. Under Windows XP/Vista/7 this can be done by navigating to the folder where your images are stored and right-clicking on any image file. This will display a pop-up menu. Choose Preview to open a slide-show window to cycle through the images in the folder. Find the image you want to use as background wallpaper, right-click on it and choose Set as desktop background.
