Setting Your Screensaver as Wallpaper on Windows 7 and Windows 8
You are probably bored by the so-outdated static wallpapers that we are already used to see on every device. Although the screen resolutions have met important enhancements over the time and so has the panel quality, the wallpapers don’t seem to have changed in too many ways over the time. However, there are many websites that offer amazing wallpapers for those looking for them, but they are still simple wallpapers that are static and already getting to boring for a generation who likes the changes and who is more dynamic than it used to be.
The change for wallpapers is possible :
If you’re also one of those persons who ever thought that having a Windows screensaver used as a wallpaper would be great, then you need to know this is indeed possible. Thinking about this, it occurred to our mind that this idea of using a screensaver as a wallpaper is actually not new at all, since it was already long ago possible, yet not too many of us – or you – used it until now, or even those who have used this in the past may have forgotten about it.
How to make your screensaver your wallpaper :
Turning your screensaver into a wallpaper is not difficult at all. There are only a few steps you need to follow and you’re ready to go:
- You need to open the Command Prompt window
- Choose your desired screensaver and type its name in the box
- After the filename of your desired screensaver, put /p65552 and then press on Enter
- That’s it!
If you did everything right, you should now be able to see your chosen screensaver running on your Windows Desktop. This works perfectly for Windows7, Windows 8 and even for Windows Vista.
Having your favorite screensaver running on your Windows Desktop can make things a bit more interesting for you, and it generally shouldn’t negatively influence the way you’re being able to use your Windows device. However, although it might be amazing to see your favorite screensaver running on your desktop as a wallpaper, you might find it impossible to interact with your Desktop after setting the screensaver as a wallpaper. In this case, you need to kill it by simply opening the Task Manager. This would cause your old wallpaper reappear on your Desktop and everything would go back to normal.
