Set Image as Wallpaper in Google Chrome

I love Google Chrome. It's my go-to browser, whether I'm on a Windows or a Mac OS X system. But there's one thing that annoys me about it: there's no way to set an image as a desktop background. IE does it. Firefox does it. Why doesn't Chrome? Well, because Google says that this is a rarely used feature and therefore they don't plan to ever support it. Google, you're wrong.

Fortunately, there's a simple workaround. Just go get the "Set Image as Background" Chrome extension. It's free and works great. When you right-click on an image, you simply get a new menu option that says "Set image as wallpaper". It's that easy. The only downside is that it only works on Windows, though I hear that Mac and Linux versions are in the works.


  1. If you don’t see the icon like the screenshot above illustrates you can click the right hand chevron to show a drop down menu of your installed extensions. You can drag this icon up to the toolbar for easy access if you to write a chrome extension

  2. Maybe, you would become more attractive and appealing to your sweetheart because of them. Can you resist the temptation of having a korean wallpaper on your cell phone
