Several websites offer the chance to download desktop backgrounds and wallpapers for free, including wallpaperswide.com and hdwallpapers.in, or even microsoft.com. A few sample backgrounds and wallpapers are also included in all modern operative systems, such as Windows and OSX.
Alternatively, all search engines provide the opportunity to look for images on the web, depending on specific keywords, resolution and color scheme. After a user finds a suitable image using a specialized website or a search engine, it can usually be set as the desktop's new wallpaper by pressing the right button of the mouse and choosing the option Set as desktop background. Users can also find free sample backgrounds by opening the desktop preferences and choosing a new image or solid color.
