I think it is sort of known that my main system is largely a media center/game rig and I like it pretty. Do any others make your desktop match as to colors and such? Here is my main with descriptions. Yes, I was a bit bored. :mrgreen:

This IS Windows 10. I use a few third party packages to do the pretty. Second image is my Start Menu. On a click I can switch between this and the normal Windows 10 Start Menu.

You might say I fancy up my desktop, but not with colors and icons as you do. As my background I use a slideshow of approx 100 animal and bird photos taken with my trail cameras. It randomly changes photos every minute.

And when I get bored with animal photos, I use a different slideshow of my motorcycle travel photos.

My main desktop is a dual monitor setup and I use the themes available from the Store. Currently I'm using the one called "Rambling Pathways" -- modified only slightly to match the color of Start and Title Bars to a color within the primary monitors image. The images change every few minutes. ;-)

Like Steve, I also use a dual monitor setup. I use four desktop themes that change their pictures. One is a bunch of individual pictures that I have accumulated from the Internet thru the years, pics that really strike my fancy. Another theme is from one of my favorite artists, Roger Dean. The last two I downloaded from Microsoft, they are photos of the Universe take from the Hubble. Sheesh, can't believe how many stars and galaxies are out there. :wacko:

I use the Bing desktop wallpaper theme so I get a new photo every day. I did have to download the Dynamic Theme from the Microsoft Store so it worked again but I like to see all the marvellous photos people have taken.

Do you 'fancy up' your desktop?

No! I like my desktop clutter free and simple.

I've never understood the need to change how a desktop 'looks' given that when a PC is in use you rarely look at the desktop?

I seem to be in the minority :)
