This tutorial covers how to set Windows Spotlight images as desktop background in Windows 10. Whenever there is a new Windows Spotlight image, it will be set as your desktop wallpaper. Even if it is not set automatically, you can update the desktop background with Spotlight image in a single click. So, apart from showing Spotlight images on Lock Screen (which is a native feature), you can enjoy viewing those beautiful images on your Windows 10 desktop background also. You can also view the previous Spotlight images, choose a fit for Spotlight image (fill, fit, stretch, and center), and also save any Spotlight image on your desktop. For doing this, you need to use a free Windows 10 app, known as “Dynamic Theme“.
Natively, it is not possible to set any of the Spotlight images as desktop background in Windows 10. You have to first access those hidden Spotlight images and then set any of those images as desktop background. This whole process is too boring and involves multiple steps. On the other hand, setting a Windows Spotlight image as desktop background or wallpaper in Windows 10 can be done in an easy manner using this app.
