How to change the background of Windows 10 without activation. When you have Windows activated on your computer, changing the background of your computer is quick and easy. All you have to do is go to “Settings -> Personalization” and choose your wallpaper. But even a simple thing like replacing the background can be a challenge if Windows is not activated.
How to change the background of Windows 10 without activation
One way to change the background is via File Explorer. If you have not already done so, create a folder in which you want to keep saved wallpapers. For example, suppose you want to create a new folder in Documents. Right click on an empty space and move the cursor to the New option. And select the folder option.
Once the folder is created, save the backgrounds you want to add to your computer, but make sure you save them in this folder. Open file explorer and go to the recently created Wallpaper folder. Right-click on it and click “Set as desktop wallpaper“.
As soon as you click on “Set”, your new wallpaper will be ready.
Change the background of Windows 10 not activated using Internet Explorer
If you experience problems with the first method for some reason, you can use Internet Explorer to bypass Windows activation. The easiest way to find Internet Explorer is to search for it in the Cortana search bar.
Once you open Internet Explorer, look for an image on the internet and just click it with the right mouse button and you will see the option “Set as wallpaper” that will automatically change the background. This option is useful if you do not want to download the image to your computer to save space.
As you can see, it is not necessary for Windows to be activated to change the background of your Windows 10 computer.
