With an improved user interface (that works the same way on all supported versions of Windows) and an assortment of new fully and partially animated desktop backgrounds, Deskscapes 3 will make your PC desktop look truly stunning.
Before purchasing or installing the software, be sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements. Windows Vista and Windows 7 users must have a machine that can run the Windows Aero desktop.
In this video we’ll show you how to apply or change your animated desktop background and also how to download new animated backgrounds, or dreams, from Stardock Software’s Dream Gallery.
To start the video presentation, please click on the picture below.
New Dream format animated wallpapers you download should be copied to ‘C:Users(your username)DocumentsStardockDreams’ on Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines or ‘C:Documents and Settings(your username)My DocumentsStardockDreams ‘ on Windows XP machines. You may need to substitute C: for whichever drive Windows is installed to on your machine (though almost all Windows systems are installed to the C: drive).
