|Landscaping Gardening Information|
Landscape wallpaper can be a great addition to your computer's desktop. Since most of us always have our PCs running, it is refreshing to see a beautiful masterpiece on the display when the computer is not in use. You may even be able to download landscape screensavers as well.
Where can I find landscape wallpaper?
You can find landscape wallpaper by simply searching for it using your web browser. There are plenty of websites out there that have landscape wallpaper ready for you to download, some even for free! You may want to search for different terms such as "snow" or "beach" to narrow down your list and save you some time. Or if you have a favorite artist, you may want to search for his name as well. You will be surprised at the number of websites that will be displayed when you search for "landscape wallpaper" so you need to do whatever you can to make it a little easier on yourself.
You may even find a theme package that has icons and sounds to go along with your new wallpaper. You could have the option of turning your "My Computer", "Recycle Bin", and other icons into nature related ones, such as a leaf or acorn. You can also choose from sounds, such as birds chirping or the low thunder of the ocean.
If you plan on downloading anything from the Internet you will want to take into consideration the time it will need to download. If you have a dial-up modem it will take the longest and you will also need to make sure you have your call waiting blocked so that the download does not get interrupted. This could force you to have to log on and start all over again, which could get pretty frustrating.
