Glossary Entry: Wallpaper

Quick Definition

In computer terminology, your wallpaper is the image you have your computer display as a backdrop. Smartphones and tablets usually have the ability to let you set the device's wallpaper too.

An easy way to find pictures to use for your computer's wallpaper is to first identify your resolution*, and then do a Google Image Search for that resolution*. For example, for a smaller screen you could try 800x600, or for a larger screen perhaps 1920x1080.
