Best Zorin OS Wallpapers

Wallpaper is the very first thing that welcomes you when you log in to your computer. We may not feel like it but the sensory response is a strong source of invoking emotion. That’s why you’ll notice advertisements on the subway. They’re silently doing their job of communicating an idea, a concept into our subconscious self. Similar rule applies to the wallpaper of your system.

It’s truer in the case of Linux distros. When you’re diving into the world of Linux, it’s important to stay in the right mood. Trust me; having the right wallpaper can really change your mood. If you’re using Zorin OS, then you’ve probably shifted to Linux from Windows/macOS. Well, why not cheer up your Linux experience?

In this article, let’s have a look at some great Zorin OS wallpapers out there. There’s actually no best wallpaper in the world; it’s all subjective. Here are the ones that I love the most. Feel free to explore your way around!

Changing wallpaper on Zorin OS

The goal of Zorin OS is to become the new alternative of Windows and macOS. With the power of Linux, it heavily tweaks its interface to match the look and feel of Windows/macOS. That’s why you’ll find similar ways of customizing the operating system.

In order to change the wallpaper, right-click on any blank space on the desktop and select “Change background”.

It’ll open the “Appearance” option. Here, you can change the wallpaper of both the normal background and the lock screen background. With both of them being separate, you can configure two different wallpaper.

Let’s see how to set the wallpaper from an image file.
