Windows 11 desktop with Insider wallpaper

Windows Insider Program 9th anniversary wallpaper downloads

Microsoft is celebrating the 9th anniversary of the Windows Insider Program, and to mark the special occasion, the company has released two new desktop wallpapers that anyone can download and set as a desktop background on Windows 11.

The company describes the wallpapers as images that provide an inside view of the product-making and design versions with different aspirations that symbolize the journey that participants of the program embarked on many years ago with the company to make the operating system better.

The two wallpapers showcase the same Windows 11 design elements but with different color schemes, including light and dark. You can use this link to download the light mode wallpaper and this one to download the dark mode wallpaper.
