The reveal of Windows 11 is just around the corner, but you don’t have to wait until next week to get a glimpse of the new OS. @ChangeWindows leaked a series of eye-catching new Windows 11 wallpapers that sparked excitement over what Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella called “the most significant update” in a decade.
There are Windows 11 wallpapers for everyone. If you like Pringles, there’s a desktop design reminiscent of an addictive chip. If you prefer a peaceful and relaxing view, there are background images for you too.
Windows 11 default background wallpaper
The default background wallpaper, according to The Verge, is what looks like a piece of soft blue cloth folded to resemble a rose. There are dark and light modes of the same wallpaper.
The bold image is a nice departure from the hero images of Windows 8 (two daisies) and Windows 10 (the glowing Windows logo).
Windows 11 wallpaper leak consists of a OneDrive folder with 24 new backgrounds. Check out five landscape backgrounds depicting the sun at various positions in the sky.
Windows 11 users who prefer a more cheerful and colorful background may be attracted to the Pringles wallpaper, the chaotic lava lamp design, or the vibrant ribbon image.
If you prefer a sky background with a burst of color, you’ll love the moon-inspired Windows 11 wallpaper.
There are also several skins for the new Windows 11 onscreen keyboard that seem to take inspiration from the cloth-like default wallpaper.
This conversational collection of Windows 11 wallpapers is just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for our coverage of the upcoming Windows 11 reveal event, scheduled for Thursday, June 24 at 11 a.m. EST, for exciting news about the new OS.
