Set up rotating wallpapers in Windows

I must confess I’m a sucker for wallpapers. I have hundreds of them, both in my office Windows computer and my home Mac, and I like changing them quite often. But sometimes I have so many beautiful images, that it’s hard to choose just one. Fortunately there are a couple of ways to fix this problem, so if you’re in the same situation as me, read carefully!

The first trick for multiple rotating wallpapers on your desktop with no hassle is using special apps. There are dozens of tools that allow you to select several wallpapers and have them rotating as desktop background images automatically. Some of the most popular ones on Softonic are Adolix Wallpaper Changer, Free Wallpaper Changer and Cyclone Wallpaper Changer, but you can find many more in our Wallpaper Utilities category.

The second trick only applies to Windows 7 users. This operating system lets you choose multiple wallpapers for your desktop, and changes them automatically without any third-party software. To set it up, simply right click on the desktop and select Personalize in the context menu. Then click the Desktop Background link at the bottom of the Window

In the next window, select as many images as you want to use as wallpaper. Remember that to select multiple files you need to hold Ctrl while clicking on the images. When you’ve selected all your wallpapers, adjust the time interval for image changing at the bottom of the window, and you’re done!
