Computer Desktop Photoart Installation Instructions

Thank you for subscribing to the CohesionArts Weekly Digest.  We hope you find it entertaining and amusing if not profoundly informative.

To download and install the files, please follow these steps: 

1. After you have completed your subscription form, a confirmation request will arrive in your inbox.  Click on the link in that message.  As soon as you confirm your subscription, a new window should open in your default browser with the link to the file download.

2. Click on download link in r browser; If you can, tell the browser which folder you want the filed to download into; if you can’t, it will wind up in your default “downloads” folder.

3.  Find the downloaded file and drag it into the folder where keep you desktops – typically something like /pictures/desktops/.

4.  Double click on the .zip file to open the archive; this will create a new sub-folder; your desktop photos will be in that folder.

Those steps should work for either MacOS or Windows (if you’re using something than those two common operating systems then you’re more advanced than we are – and you’re on your own).

It’s been almost 7 years now since we stopped using Windows/PCs, so we don’t recall precisely how desktop images are installed for Windows, but it must be something like this process on a Mac:

5. Go to the “System Preferences panel.

6. Select “Desktop & Screen Saver” and then highlight the ‘Desktop” tab.

7. Toward the bottom left corner of that panel you’ll see a “+ ” button.  Click that button and a “Finder (Windows=”Explorer”) window will open.  Navigate to the folder where you stashed the files in step 3 above.

8.  That folder will then show up in the list of desktop image folders, and should become the selected folder for your desktop images

9.  Select the image you want to serve as your desktop, then select among the other options like “Change picture” every xx minutes.

10.  If you use the “Spaces” feature of OSX (or the Windows equivalent, I have no idea what it would be called…), you’ll have to set a new desktop for each “Space” that have open.

Trust us, it sounds more difficult than it actually is.

The files that we offer for desktops changes from time to time, but these instructions should work regardless of what files you are downloading.  If you’re still having issues, please contact list man@cohesionarts.com and we’ll try to help you out.

Thanks again for subscribing to The Weekly Digest.
