You may not agree but we personally feel that the default Windows 11 wallpapers can get a little boring after a while. Luckily for us, customizing Windows 11 is fairly similar to how it was done in Windows 10 which means it’s not the hardest of tasks to do, unlike fixing those laggy animation effects.

So if you don’t like the default wallpapers Windows 11 has to offer and have already tried a new theme that sometimes comes with a different background, then you can easily change the wallpaper to a picture of your choice. This is exactly what we will be taking a look at in this guide.

Customizing the background image is very straightforward and can also be easily changed at a later date, just do the steps below again. If you can’t decide which image you would like as wallpaper then you could always create a slideshow with all your favorite pictures.
