Windows 10 and Windows 11 both have the ability to use “Windows Spotlight” wallpapers on the lock screen, which are refreshed daily. Now Windows 11 also brings Spotlight to the desktop.

Microsoft started rolling out a new update for Windows 11 earlier this week, which includes the ability to set the wallpaper as “Windows Spotlight”. When enabled (Settings > Personalization > Background > Customize your background), your wallpaper update every day with new images selected by Microsoft.

Windows Spotlight on the desktop doesn’t show the same tips and ads as on the lock screen, but it does add a shortcut icon in the top right for more about the current image. You can also always use a custom image, solid color, or image slideshow as your wallpaper.

Microsoft has also offered the ‘Bing Wallpaper’ application for Windows for a while now, which adds similar auto-switching wallpaper images to the desktop. Even though Spotlight and Bing generally have the same theme of real-world photos, the actual images are never the same between each service for some reason.

The new feature was a long time coming – Microsoft started testing Windows Spotlight for desktop back in 2020. It may have taken a while, but now it’s finally here.
