WallpaperHub is a new site for wallpapers. While that is not super spectacular in itself, considering that wallpaper sites are a dime a dozen on the Internet, the focus on official and unofficial Microsoft wallpapers is.
The site features original wallpapers from different Microsoft devices, conferences and operating systems, and unofficial wallpapers related to Microsoft.
All versions of Windows and most devices by Microsoft come with a set of included wallpapers. Anyone may download featured wallpapers and other wallpapers that Microsoft released from the official Microsoft website as well.
WallpaperHub features wallpaper listings for Microsoft operating systems such as Windows 7 or Windows 10, for Microsoft devices such as the original Xbox and Surface devices, and events, services, or tools such as Azure or conferences.
The site itself is easy to use. You can browse the popular selection of wallpapers, dive into collections, or open wallpaper tags instead.
You find Windows 7's Betta fish wallpaper on the site as well as Microsoft's Ninja Cat Unicorn wallpaper for Windows 10, or the default Surface Studio wallpaper.
Each wallpaper comes with a description that highlights the history of the wallpaper or the product it was used in.
A click on a wallpaper displays download options. WallpaperHub lists each wallpaper in different sizes; sizes range from display resolutions of Microsoft products, e.g. the Surface Pro, Surface Book, or Surface Go, and also common desktop resolutions such as 1080p, Ultrawide, 4K, or mobile.
You may download one, some or all of the wallpapers to your system. Note that the site does not feature a "download all" button; a program like Bulk Image Downloader may prove useful as you may use it to download all wallpapers in one go.
The site features a couple dozen wallpapers only at this point in time. Michael Gillet, the Microsoft MVP who created the site, promised to release regular updates in the future. One of the first updates introduced popular wallpapers. Michael hopes to integrate theme support eventually on the site in future updates.
A site dedicated to Microsoft wallpapers and hopefully themes in the future is something that has not been available before. While the current selection of wallpapers is rather small, there is lots of room for improvement considering the large number of wallpapers and themes that Microsoft released in the past.
