Still haven't made it to Windows 11? Say hello to the new operating system with these great desktop backgrounds.
The reveal of Windows 11 got us excited, but like most major operating system announcements, you'll have to wait for this version to ship. While Windows Insiders will be able to take advantage of the betas pretty soon, most people will have to wait until later in 2021 or early 2022 to get the update.
The quickest way to give your PC a nice Windows 11 feel is to add the beautiful new wallpapers to your desktop. Even if your PC can't run Windows 11, these wallpapers will surely make you feel like you are living in the future.
Top 5 Windows 11 Wallpapers
Windows 11 has lots of great wallpapers, but we've picked the best of the best so you don't have to. Let's dive right in and take a look at the top five Windows 11 wallpapers.
1. Pleated fabric
Windows 11 has several variations of the folded fabric wallpaper. To some, it looks like an artistic way of depicting fabrics, while others might just see what clothes look like in a washing machine. No matter which camp you belong to, this pattern against a dark background is difficult to please.
2. Sunrise, blue sky
If you prefer to soothe your PC while it boots, the Sunrise set of Windows 11 wallpapers is for you. This idyllic landscape is our favorite from the sunrise.
3. Luminous sphere
Windows 11 has a couple of glowing spherical wallpapers, and the green variant is our favorite. It reminds us of beautiful footage from nature documentaries, especially those that focus on tropical rainforests.
4. Fabric reception
If you thought there wasn't enough of the pleated fabric aesthetic in our first pick, this one will surely satisfy your needs. It has enough fabric to make tailors proud, yet leaves plenty of room for icons and widgets to brighten up your desktop.
5. Fluid flow
Windows 11's flowing wallpapers have a clean aesthetic that we really like. Our selections here portray the ups and downs of life really well, and the color is calming enough to put you in a good mood when you start your computer.
Are you ready for Windows 11?
Once you've chosen your preferred Windows 11 wallpaper, it's time to do the more serious things. You should check that your PC is running Windows 11 and fix any errors if you see them. When that's done just sit back, relax and enjoy the amazing wallpapers that you have just added to your PC.
