A wallpaper or background is a digital image (photo, drawing, etc.) that serves as a decorative background for a graphical user interface on a computer, smartphone, or other electronic device’s screen. Wallpapers are typically used on the desktop of a computer, but they also serve as the background for the home screen of a mobile phone. Despite the fact that most devices come with a default background image, modern devices usually allow users to change it manually.
Before Windows XP, the term “wallpaper” was used in Microsoft Windows (where it was referred to as “desktop background”), whereas macOS refers to it as “desktop picture.” The term “desktop pattern” was used on older systems that allowed small repeated patterns to be set as background images.
