Change the background of your desktop

Or you can always select 'Browse' and add your own picture. For the background you can select picture, solid color or slideshows. Your wallpaper can in fact beanything you like. For example, you can choose to upload a picture from your own collection or one that is already included on this version of Window, a solid color or even a slide show, that can play pictures that you have selected randomly on all displays.

Pick up new colors

You can choose an accent color from a palette or you can select to have Windows 10 pick up a color from your wallpaper automatically. If you wish you can extend the color choice to the Start menu, taskbar and action center, below the palette. There is also another option; you can turn on transparencies for all these items. In fact, this last one can actually allow you to eke out a bit more performance in case your card of your graphics isunderpowered or older.
