If you’re looking for a way to add a little personal touch to your workspace I’ve got a tech tip for you! It’s one I discovered by accident today.
Our family had a great weekend attending our daughters’ final dance competition of the season. We came away with several great pictures! I thought about using one of them as the wallpaper on my work computer.
The thing is… I couldn’t decide which one. That’s when I realized I didn’t have to pick. My computer would rotate through them at whatever time interval I chose. I went with 5 minutes.
Every time I came back into my office and looked at my computer it made me smile. It will definitely help if I’m having a bad day!
To make this happen I’d suggest creating a “wallpaper folder” and save a bunch of photos into it. If you’re looking for your favorite pics you might download some from Facebook… since you’ve probably shared all your favorites.
Mac users in order to set your wallpaper go to System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > the wallpaper folder you created. Check the box for “change picture” and set the time interval.
PC users this guide should get you going.
You could use pictures of family and friends, your favorite vacation spot, your kid’s artwork, or even a picture of a goal of yours. Saving money for a new vehicle? You could put a picture of it as your wallpaper to keep you motivated.
I’m looking forward to adding a whole lot more pictures and setting the computer to display them at random. That way I’m always surprised!
