How to Make your Computer Less Boring

// // Leave a Comment
This is going to be interesting and let's start right away:

Desktop

Some things got to change, We will customize your computer first:

Change the wallpaper

That sounds simple! You probably would be using the same Windows theme since it was installed! Change it to something cool, let it be your favorite film artwork, game wallpaper, personal photos or anything.

 

Live Wallpapers

You didn't know this right? You might have seen them in smart phones, but not in computers. Look up on Google.

 

Themes

Customize the Windows theme you are using. Change it totally! Right click on Desktop > Personalize. Here you can customize themes. I wrote a blog post on How To Save To Disk And Transfer Windows Themes

 

Use the “Gadgets”

Windows has a feature called gadgets, I think Windows 8 doesn't have this. I thought it slowed down my system, so I didn't use it.

 

Screen Savers

Screen savers are so cool! My favorite is the “Matrix” effect from the movie. You won't believe how much free screen savers are available on the Internet.


Windows Explorer

Let's customize Windows Explorer too!

Customize Icons

Did you know that the icons in Windows explorer are also customizable? You can change the folder icons. Right click on a folder, go to customize tab, click on Change Icon. Browse for the file and open it. When you change the default folder icon, the preview of files won't be shown on the folder. The file has to be a icon file(.ico). You can use an image converter software for this. XnConvert is the best freeware image converter. The icons such as the Drives, My Computer etc also can be changed. For that read the next section:

Themes

Yeah I know, I already mentioned about themes in the Desktop section! There is also another kind of themes, they change your computer totally; Wallpapers, icons, pointers, everything that is customizable. One of such themes is the Mac theme for Windows. Mac theme as it says gives the layout of Mac to your Windows PC. It works on Windows 7 and higher. It is available for free I believe. But, Mac theme is CPU/Graphic resources hungry! It slowed down my system, so I had to get rid of that even though I liked it.
