Awesome Desktop Wallpapers: The Windows 7 Edition

Today we’ve got some awesome, high-quality, and just generally amazing desktop wallpapers for your system tweaking pleasure. Unlike some of the previous roundups, we made sure to only pick wallpaper with large resolution versions available.

Click on the pictures to see the full-size version, and you’ll need to use the Download link on the left side of the download page to get the gigantic, high-quality version. All of these should fit any widescreen desktop, even large ones. Note: this first one is the official RTM wallpaper.

    I want to answer the question you’re all asking…

    Deviants on DeviantART work very hard (usually) to get their work completed and published. They can often have a hard time getting the attention they want, and so the download counter and view counter are what give a lot of the motivation.

    By uploading your own copy you could make someone’s day very, very bad.

  16. Ankit

    I am new to it. So when I clicked the link on the image I directed to Deviantart where there was an option to download the image but when I clicked download, another windows opened and nothing happened. Please tell what to do to get these wallpapers
