Downloading the Free WorldStart Wallpaper

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Desktop Enhancement, Free Downloads

Can you please offer a step-by-step on how to download and install your monthly wallpapers?

There are several ways to get there, but this method shows how to get the wallpaper, starting at the WorldStart home page, using Internet Explorer.

First, scroll down and click on WorldStart Wallpaper.

You can then select from the Featured Wallpaper, or choose previous selections.

For this, I chose to get wallpaper without the calendar, by clicking the Without Calendar link below the image.

On the next page, if you’re only interested in wallpaper, scroll all the way down and click on the link, No Thanks-Just Wallpaper Today.

Then, right click on the image and select Set as Background. Or, if you want to save the image to your computer to set as wallpaper later, select Save picture as…

If you choose Set as background, this may bring up the message, Are you sure you want to replace your desktop wallpaper? If that’s what you want, click Yes.

If you have problems with the final step, there are helpful instructions available. Just scroll down and, hopefully your question will be answered there.

If the size isn’t exactly what you want, here’s a little cheat. In the browser address bar, you’ll see something like this,

The numbers in the address indicate the size that’s being downloaded. Occasionally, these aren’t exactly what you’re looking for. Just highlight the numbers and change them. For example, if I didn’t want the size indicated above (1440 x 900), but would prefer 1600 x 1200, I could just change the numbers in the address bar to the following:

    I love the bit about changing the width and height numbers.

    It would be a great tip, but why the musical instrument comment at the end? What? You didn’t know that a “Viola” is a musical instrument? I believe the correct word would be “voila”, with a little accent mark over the “a”, meaning “there you are” or “there it is”, from the French. Yes folks, must have graduated from Philly schools…
