The Windows 10 Spotlight feature has become quite popular among users, as it provides you with an extensive collection of images that can be set as your lock screen background. However, it is not available for older versions of the OS, at least not without third-party software.
Spotlight for Windows Desktop is a tiny application that allows you to access this image gallery from Windows 7, as well as Win 8 and Win 8.1. It is very simple to install and configure.
Set pictures as your wallpaper or lock screen background
This program downloads images from the Spotlight API, so it uses the same photos that a Windows 10 PC normally receives. The pictures are taken in various locations from around the world, and all are approved by Microsoft to ensure only the best are included.
These photos can be used as either your wallpaper or lock screen background, and they are selected randomly and changed every few hours.
Quick and easy installation
After going through the setup process, you may need to reboot your PC. Once that is done, your wallpaper should now feature a new image downloaded by the application. To configure the program, simply access the settings panel from the Start menu.
The service can be enabled or disabled at any time, and you can even change the current wallpaper manually if you are not happy with it. If you like, you can also enable the feature on any new accounts that are created.
Great Spotlight alternative for users who don’t want to update to Windows 10
A lot of users are perfectly happy with Windows 7 or 8.1 and see no reason to upgrade, but would still like to take advantage of some features offered by the latest edition of the OS. If you want to use the images provided by Microsoft through the Win 10 Spotlight service, Spotlight for Windows Desktop is just what you need.
