Not bad

If you're tired of always having the same wallpaper – and tired of looking for more as well – then Desktoptopia is just the application you need.

This program runs in the background and connects to the online Desktoptopia wallpaper collection, downloading new background images for your desktop, either automatically (according to the time period you set) or manually, every time you click on the program's icon in the system tray.

The wallpaper collection is pretty impressive, not so much for the number of pictures included in it, but mainly for their quality and beauty. As they're classified into different categories, you can select those that you prefer and leave out those ones you're not interested in.

However, there's one important drawback to Desktoptopia, and that is its stability. I understand the program is still in beta, but it crashed a few times while testing it and sometimes didn't download wallpapers properly.

Desktoptopia features a beautiful collection of wallpapers you can download and use automatically in your PC. Sadly it's still quite buggy.

Desktoptopia is a free desktop background manager that automatically loads and displays designer desktops on your monitor, as often as you wish. Desktoptopia is packed with features that make it simple to automatically update your monitor with our designer desktops as often as you like. Check out some of these key features.

Huge Collection Of Designer Desktops

We are working with some of the most talented designers in the world to create a master collection of backgrounds exclusive to Desktoptopia. Our huge collection grows everyday, so you're sure to to be inspired with the freshest and latest designs. Why hunt through all the landscapes and Hello Kitty desktops out there? Let us bring the best to you.

You're In Control

Loving the current desktop? Can't stop staring at it? Just click Pause in the menubar, and stare all you want. You can also go back, or to the next desktop right from the menubar. Setting how often your desktop changes is just as simple.

The Wisdom Of Crowds

You can rate desktops anytime from the menubar. You can also subscribe to categories like Photography, Illustration, Typography, Architecture, Graphic Design, 3D, and Abstract. Or you can mix it up with a little from all the categories.

Multiple Monitor Support

Got two monitors? We're so jealous. But, Desktoptopia has got you covered. You can decide how you want Desktoptopia to work with your multiple-monitor set up. You can have twice the love and duplicate the desktop on both monitors, only show desktops on one (whichever one you want), or show different desktops on each monitor.

Automatic Resolution Detection

Quick, what's your monitor resolution? Yeah, we don't know ours either. Desktoptopia will automatically detect your resolution and deliver you the appropriately sized desktop, so your desktops always look their best.

Beautiful And Useable Desktops

Desktoptopia delivers the most beautiful and inspiring desktops around from our ever-growing collection. But that's only half the story. We keep our desktops useable, so you can actually find stuff on your desktop.
