4 Desktop Wallpapers You Need On Your Computer!

When you are at work all day, it can be hard to be productive for hours on end. Your mind starts to wander and you begin to think about things outside of work. But instead of thinking of home life, you could be sorting out your computer. Many of us have unsorted files which need organising, so take a few moments to do this.

Having a wallpaper of a cat or a dog can make you smile. Watching videos of cats was recently proved to increase positive emotions and decrease bad feelings. Therefore looking at a cute picture is bound to do the same thing. There are many funny photos and memes about, such as Grumpy Cat, which will even encourage a laugh during your day.

It would be even better if you put a picture of a pet as your background, as it will really make you feel homely. It will help you feel more comfortable at work which will encourage productivity.


Having a picture of your family as your wallpaper is a great way to personalise your computer. Whether it’s a child or a partner, it will bring a smile to your face and will remind you of home. If it was taken at a special place or during a holiday, it will be even better to help to lift your mood. You could also add a slideshow to your computer of your vacation, or a special event, which will make you smile.

It’s also a good conversation starter with your co-workers. If you are fairly new or lack confidence, a family photo could get a conversation going. It could lead to further chats, and ultimately making a new friend.


Having your favourite quote on the screen will help to increase your productivity in the workplace. Whether it’s a quote from a film, or from your favourite book, this type of desktop wallpaper can really encourage you if you are feeling deflated.


If you decide to put a wallpaper up of your favourite celebrity on screen, it could motivate you during the day ahead. It would be great to use someone that inspires you in your daily life. Whether it’s a musician or an artist, it could help you during your work day.

If you choose a Movie or TV scene in which your favourite actor or actress is in, it might be an idea to get an HD Wallpaper. It will make your computer look great, and will likely get you compliments from fellow staff.
