Desktop Live Wallpapers is a free Windows 10/11 desktop modification utility that empowers users of all knowledge levels to transform their static desktop backgrounds into fully animated ones with just a few clicks of their mouse.

The desktop app unlocks access not only to a large catalog of stunning pre-made videos but also enables users to make their work surface unique with not only their cherished home videos but also any video they have (scenes from movies, clips from popular online videos, and more).

This simple utility can dramatically change the look of the user’s desktop workspace for free, with an optional premium pass unlocking access to a larger set of premium cloud-hosted videos. User-defined video option is accessible only in the Pro version.

How To Use

With Desktop Live Wallpapers anyone can customize their Windows 10 and Windows 11 desktop with a wide array of animated wallpapers, organized into a large array of categories such as nature scenes, abstract designs, animated graphics, cloudscapes, and more. It should be noted that built-in categories do not cover all usage scenarios, with a few notable missing categories such as movies, games, and more.

Downloading new live wallpapers, the app recommends visiting popular image-searching websites such as google.com, bing.com, and yahoo.com. Using personal videos as animated wallpaper backgrounds is only accessible in the premium version of this app.

Desktop Live Wallpapers also include support for multiple monitors (all with different DPI levels), allowing users to apply different live wallpapers to each of their screens.

User Interface

The user interface of this lightweight app consists primarily of the content browser that allows users to pick a category of their choice and pick one of the available animated desktop choices that can be applied on their work surface with a simple click.

The configuration options are quite limited, but they allow for all basic functions such as launching the app on Windows startup, managing the status of the app icon, displaying a warning for elevated system resources when showing an animated desktop video, toggling sounds in videos, and managing wallpaper fit setting.
