How to Change Wall paper and other personalization settings on Windows 10


Changing Wallpaper on a system does not necessarily appeal to a majority, however changing a wallpaper on windows 10 can be achieved by following a few steps that will be discussed in this article

While some people don’t find changing a computer’s wallpaper fascinating, some others don’t know how to go about it or don’t have that luxury time to search through the many settings on their computer system. For a few other, applying a wallpaper is one of the first things you would typically do after installing a new operating system.

However, applying your own customizations to a copy of Windows 10 that hasn’t been activated may not be so straightforward since Microsoft blocks access to the software’s personalization settings without a valid product license. While most of the operating system can be used for free without providing an activation key, not having access to the personalization menus can be annoying if you like having custom colors, sounds, start menu and taskbar settings, or again, even just your own desktop background. Fortunately, applying a new wallpaper isn’t impossible, despite some of the menu options being blocked.

Here are a few steps to follow if you are interested in changing your window’s 10 wallpaper or other personalization settings.

step 1; Go to settings and search for ‘Personalization’ in the search space.

Step 2; You will find an option for ‘Themes’ click on it and you will find several themes option you can choose from.

Note; You can also manually modify an existing themepack or create a new one from scratch.


You can extract the contents of a .themepack file with Windows Explorer by changing the file extension to .cab, while the software Cabpack makes it easy to repack files into a new cab archive.

If you decide to activate your copy of Windows 10 so you aren’t jumping through these extra hoops: Right click the Start button > System > Change product key or update your edition of Windows, where you will find a link to the Microsoft store which sells Windows 10 for $139(N50,457).

The same page will also let you provide a product key purchased elsewhere, and it’s worth noting that Windows 10 keys are often available for $10(N3600) or so on eBay, however your mileage will vary and those keys acquired on the cheap may only work for a few weeks if you’re lucky.
