My desktop is blank with a simple blue background. I organize all my desktop icons into folders, then hide desktop icons. I then create a desktop toolbar so I can still access the shortcuts. I don't spend any time at my desktop so don't understand why people take the time to make their desktop pretty. With the desktop toolbar, I can access any of my desktop shortcuts without the necessity of returning to the desktop.

Me too. I just have a photo of my family across my 3 screens as wallpaper. That's it. I am so crazy about boot up speed on my main PC and I don't use widgets or themes. Those things just usually drag the boot up time up to 5X slower. I only use them on my Windows 8.1 tablet. But I'm having fun looking at other people's beautiful screens here.

Hmm... now your asking.. If I remember I think it's actually from Arkham City or Arkham Asylum but I had googled for Batman Origin desktops originally... I can't remember which actual site i got it from but I still got a copy. I could zip and post if you want it and can't find it. I only have it in 1920x1080 though..

I've only been there once, and found it a very nice city, but those temps makes me happier to be where I am, even though it's still too cold for me. If I could, I would move to somewhere around the equator, but then I would probably gripe about the heat and humidity.
