Desktop Wallpaper Collections Organized by Genre

Posted by Rich On August - 23 - 2010

As there are so many wallpapers on this site now (I haven’t counted, but I’d say 3,000+), it can be hard to find the ones you like. To help you dig through wallpapers here on Windows Guides, I’ve divided the wallpapers up into 15 different genres over 19 different collections. Today we released the 3D and Abstract Desktop Wallpaper Collection [Set 1] and we’ll release a new collection every Wednesday for the next 18 weeks. Want to be the first to know when the latest collection is released?

So here’s today’s (check back Wednesday for more great wallpapers or read the rest of the guide to see the other genre’s we have coming up):

3D and Abstract Desktop Wallpaper Collection [Set 1]
