WallpaperHub: one stop shop for Microsoft wallpapers

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.

Closing Words

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.

    Are these articles AI generated?

    Now the duplicates are more obvious.

    1. boris said on March 19, 2023 at 11:48 pm

      This is below AI generated crap. It is copy of Microsoft Help website article without any relevant supporting text. Anyway you can find this information on many pages.

    Yes, but why post the exact same article under a different title twice on the same day (19 march 2023), by two different writers?
    1.) Excel Keyboard Shortcuts by Trevor Monteiro.
    2.) 70+ Excel Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows by Priyanka Monteiro

    Why oh why?

    1. Clairvaux said on September 6, 2023 at 11:30 am

      Yeah. Tell me more about “Priyanka Monteiro”. I’m dying to know. Indian-Portuguese bot ?

    Probably they will announce that the taskbar will be placed at top, right or left, at your will.

    Special event by they is a special crap for us.

    If it’s Microsoft, don’t buy it.
    Better brands at better prices elsewhere.

  5. John G. said on August 20, 2023 at 4:22 am

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

  6. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 7:48 am

    WTF? So, If I add one photo to 5 albums, will it count 5x on my storage?
    It does not make any sense… on google photos, we can add photo to multiple albums, and it does not generate any additional space usage

    I have O365 until end of this year, mostly for onedrive and probably will jump into google one

    Photo storage must be kept free because customers chose gadgets just for photos and photos only.

    What a nonsense. Does it mean that albums are de facto folders with copies of our pictures?

    1. GG said on September 6, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Sounds exactly like the poor coding Microsoft is known for in non-critical areas i.e. non Windows Core/Office Core.

      I imagine a manager gave an employee the task to create the album feature with hardly any time so they just copied the folder feature with some cosmetic changes.

      And now that they discovered what poor management results in do they go back and do the album feature properly?

      Nope, just charge the customer twice.

      Sounds like a go-getter that needs to be promoted for increasing sales and managing underlings “efficiently”, said the next layer of middle management.

    When will those comments get fixed? Was every editor here replaced by AI and no one even works on this site?

    Instead of a software company, Microsoft is now a fraud company.

  11. ard said on September 7, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    For me this is proof that Microsoft has a back-door option into all accounts in their cloud.
    quote “…… as the MSA key allowed the hacker group access to virtually any cloud account at Microsoft…..”

    so this MSA key which is available to MS officers can give access to all accounts in MS cloud.This is the backdoor that MS has into the cloud accounts. Lucky I never got any relevant files of mine in their (MS) cloud.

  12. Andy Prough said on September 7, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    >”Now You: what is your theory?”

    That someone handed an employee a briefcase full of cash and the employee allowed them access to all their accounts and systems.

    Anything that requires 5-10 different coincidences to happen is highly unlikely. Occam’s razor.

    Good reason to never login to your precious machine with a Microsoft a/c a.k.a. as the cloud.

    The GAFAM are always very careless about our software automatically sending to them telemetry and crash dumps in our backs. It’s a reminder not to send them anything when it’s possible to opt out, and not to opt in, considering what they may contain. And there is irony in this carelessness biting them back, even if in that case they show that they are much more cautious when it’s their own data that is at stake.
