  • The feature allows you to add stickers to the desktop.
  • The option is available from the desktop context menu and Background settings.

Microsoft quietly brings Stickers to Windows 11 22H2. In the latest preview of Windows 11 in the Beta Channel, the company revealed some additional features expected to arrive in the next version. “Stickers” wasn’t on the list, but it’s now available for testing.

On Windows 11, “Stickers” is a feature that allows you to have more fun with the desktop by adding stickers to your wallpapers.

In the latest preview build, you have two ways to add stickers to the desktop. You can right-click the desktop and select the “Add or edit stickers” option or click the “Add stickers” button from the Background settings page.

Once you invoke the feature, an interface similar to the one for emojis will appear on the desktop, letting you select from a large variety of stickers. 

You can add as many stickers as you want to the desktop. You can drag them around and resize them, and when you are done editing, you need to click the close (X) button to apply the settings and regain access to the desktop. Once in place, the sticker will be preserved even if you change the wallpaper.

Since the company hasn’t officially announced it, it’s unclear if this feature will be included in the final release of Windows 11 22H2.
