My Desktop Free View


View My Desktop

Beng tagged me last month but I was so busy, I even had a short hiatus so in short, I wasn’t able to do it. Well here it is, better late than never right? Hehe

Btw, “My Desktop Free View“, is a meme/tag started by my friend iRonnie and here’s what he has to say about it:

Most people spend a considerable amount of time in customizing or in finding a desktop wallpaper that suits their taste. Sadly, our computers often remains… personal. Why don’t we brag to the world our good-find wallpapers and let them have a peek to our personality via our desktops?

I love wallpapers and I enjoy looking for new ones every now and then. I change my desktop wallpaper once in a while or when I get bored with the one I’m using and I also keep a collection of my favorite wallpapers.

My Desktop

My Laptop

It says to tag 5 persons, but I haven’t tagged anyone in a long time so I guess it’s okay if I tagged more than 5. So I’m tagging:

My Desktop Free View Instructions:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

You can do a screen capture by: [1] Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). [2] Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). [3] If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.

D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

    @Tina – Thanks for the compliment! Pareho tayo, I like clean wallpapers so I can see the icons well. I’m a bit OC myself, even if I don’t change wallpapers that often but when I do I make sure everything is nice and neat. :D

    Btw, javing motivational wallpapers is a very good idea especially for students. :)

  21. Tina

    October 16, 2007 at 8:07 AM

    I joined this meme too, only tagged by someone else. :)

    I like your wallpapers! :) Very clean looking. I’m all for clean wallpapers, meaning dapat may space sya for icons. I don’t like wallpapers that are too busy that I can’t appreciate it and see my icons clearly at the same time. I’m OC with my desktop, kaya I want my wallpaper to match, at least. :D I don’t collect wallpapers too, except lang siguro kung gusto ko talaga. :D

    Back in college, I used to make “motivational” wallpapers. One time my wallpaper said, “MAG-ARAL KA!” to remind myself to study. Next term I had “FOCUS” on it, but the effect kind of wore off. :D

    Yup, I use VLC to play videos, DVDs and other stuff. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this tag/meme. :D

  25. K

    October 16, 2007 at 3:57 AM

    @iRonnie – Yeah, thanks to Beng. You’re welcome! It was fun doing it and it’s been a while since I was tagged. Bout the laptop wallpaper, thanks! I even forget how and where I got it. Hehe :D

    200 wallpapers? That’s a lot! Same here, I have a lot of wallpapers which I barely use. I change my wallpaper when I get bored with the one I have or when I find a new one. :)

  27. iRonnie

    October 16, 2007 at 12:53 AM

    hi jaypee. umabot pala sa iyo to. hehe. thanks for taking the time to do this one. nga pala, ang cute nung wallpaper mo sa laptop! :mrgreen:

    dati i have like 200 wallpapers siguro na naka save sa hard disk ko pero di ko naman nagagamit lahat. ngayon nagpapalit na lang ako if may ma encounter akong maganda.

    saan mo nakuha yang laptop wallpaper mo? :mrgreen:

  28. JP Habaradas

    October 16, 2007 at 12:45 AM

    @Joni – For someone who’s into design, I didn’t expect you to use default wallpapers. I thought you even create your own wallpapers. I used to create my own wallpapers back in the days but I soon got tired and bored doing it. Hehe Looking forward to see your wallpapers. :D

    Thanks! I just got it a few days ago. :)

  29. Joni

    October 16, 2007 at 12:44 AM

    I’m the type who makes use of default wallpapers. But there are also times when I try to look for good ones. Depende sa mood, hehe. I’ll respond to your tag para mabal-an mo kung ano akon boring wallpaper, hehehe. Duwa na nagtag sakon so marespond ko soon. :)

    Btw, cute sng first wallpaper mo! :)
