Everyone talks about new wallpaper, are you new to the internet and technology?
Thanks for the links.
Gotta say, their default wallpaper game has been spot on the past few years.
Yep, I hardly change the default wallpaper that comes with Surface devices now.
I wonder if these wallpapers were snipped out of the dynamic wallpaper feature that was supposed to come out in 10x. They kind of look that way. If so, it's a shame that the dynamic wallpapers won't be on Windows 11. It actually looked amazing concept.
