It is recommended that you change the wallpaper of your desktop after some time, as one can get bored by looking at the same picture each and every day. However, changing the wallpaper requires you to first find a good wallpaper. High quality wallpapers can be downloaded from the internet, but you have to manually change it every day from the Personalization options. Last week, we covered an application named Kuvva, an application for Windows that automatically changes the wallpaper of your desktop and Twitter account, based on your preferences. Today, we have another application called Color Desker, which automatically downloads and updates your local desktop wallpaper from an online library of more than 300 HD wallpapers. It is a Windows application that periodically changes your desktop background after a specified time interval. The application provides you with beautiful, high quality wallpapers for your desktop. You can set the application to either change the wallpaper automatically, or take over the control yourself for manually changing it. More on Color Desker after the break.
The developer has made sure to keep the application simple and user friendly. After installation, it takes some time to load up the thumbnails of the available wallpapers on the first run. To apply a wallpaper, simply double-click it, or right-click it and select Set as Desktop Wallpaper option. Note that you need to be connected to the internet in order to set a new wallpaper, as the application does not have its own database and downloads the wallpaper before applying it.
The application allows you to specify the time interval for automatically changing the wallpaper from 5, 10, 15 and 60 minutes, as well as switch to manual control. Click the button available in the bottom-left corner of the application and select your choice.
The View menu at the top allows you to select Show only Loved, Show only Hated, Show Least Used, Show Most popular and Show All options for settings filters on wallpaper view.
Color Desker provides you with beautiful HD wallpapers, but while testing, we found it to be a bit laggy at times. Testing was done on a 64-bit, Windows 7 machine. It works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
