PCs running Windows operating system with a screen resolution of at least 800x600 with at least 256 colours.
To download a collection of different pictures that you can change anytime, go to the selection of your choice and click with your right mouse button on the link. Select the "Save Target As" option to save the file (which should be named something.jpg) into your Windows folder (usually C:\Windows) or into a new folder you have created specifically for background images.
A box will then appear that asks where you would like to save the file. We suggest that you save the file to your Windows directory. If you save it in any other location, please remember the location so you can find it later!
Minimize all programs so you can see your Windows desktop (if you can see the "My Computer" icon, then you're at your desktop!)
Right click anywhere on the desktop. This will open a list of options. Select the "Properties" option. The "Display Properties" box will open. The Background tab should be at the front of the window.
Select the image you just downloaded from the list of images available as wallpaper. You may need to scroll down in this box to find the image. Clicking on the image should show a small preview picture of the wallpaper in the simulated computer screen.
Click OK. Your wallpaper is now in place!
These images should work just fine as Macintosh background images also. Follow step 1 above, but instead of clicking the right-hand mouse button, click and hold the mouse button down until a menu pops up. There should be a "Set as wallpaper" option in that menu if you are using Netscape 3.0 or newer.
By default, Mac OS 8 installs a folder called "Sample Desktop Pictures" in the "Apple Extras" folder on your hard drive. After downloading your wallpaper selection, place the file in the "Sample Desktop Pictures" folder.
The "Desktop Picture Control Panel" allows you to select and activate the wallpaper image that you have downloaded. (example: filename.jpg) To get to the "Desktop Picture Control Pane" look under the Apple inside the "Control Panel" folder.
Within the "Desktop Picture Control Panel" click the "Picture" button and then click the "Add Picture/Remove Picture" button to make a selection (pick the image you just downloaded.) Click the "Set Desktop" button and you're done!
