Hi, this is Mike Callahan, the ‘Doctor File Finder’. Welcome to your Butterscotch.com Tutorial on changing the wallpaper on your Mac desktop. Now your Mac comes by default with quite an assortment of nice wall paper. We’ll click on System Preferences, click on Desktop and Screen Saver, but we’re going to get to screen saver on another tutorial. If you have a dual-monitor system, this dialogue actually comes up on both screens. So right now I see it over here on the right screen, and I see it over there on the left screen. And I can choose different wallpapers for each screen. So here are some basic -- colors, you can see I can change and it changes instantly; something with textures. There’s something that have to do with nature. Here’s that fancy rift in space time that I talk about in the show notes. Here’s earth, there’s plants, black and white abstract, all kinds of things. Or you can pick out some of your own pictures that you can use as wallpaper, like this is one picture of the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland in June of 2002, very nice picture, beautiful green, beautiful country. So you can use the wall paper that comes with your Mac. You can use pictures of your family, friends, scenery. You can go out in the internet and find wallpaper on a large number of sites. Again, if you have a dual-monitor system, you could have this wallpaper on this screen, and a different wallpaper on another screen. So this is changing the wallpaper on your Mac and it’s all there is to it.
