Editors' review

Despite its own drab appearance, ScrollWall does a great job of jazzing up your desktop. A plain but functional interface makes it easy to search for and add your favorite BMP, JPEG, and GIF images, and we appreciate the ability to grab multiple images instead of having to individually add files.

You can choose to have the wallpaper change daily, or at hour, minute, and even second intervals. ScrollWall runs in the background and isn't a resource hog, but there's a brief flicker when the wallpaper changes even when the desktop isn't visible. It doesn't interrupt work in other applications, however, and the program worked well in our tests using a variety of intervals. It may not be a necessity, but this freeware program offers a cheap and effective way to liven up your desktop.

    "a great simple wallpaper changer for windows"

    May 12, 2012   |   By phatso0

    Version: ScrollWall 1.2

    Pros

    easy to install, even easier to setup. you can change the update interval from 1min to 59hrs, and also to change at startup. exactly as described. nicely sized thumbnails and preview

    Cons

    loading tiff format images would be nice, but it handles jpg, gif, and bmp fine. only real con i can find is closing the manager, i would have and did expect that clicking Close would send the app to taskbar from which it opened. it closes the app, most utilities close & minimize to taskbar

    Summary

    finally a tool that changes wallpapers and does not lock you down to low quality images. i use HD images and for some reason a lot of wallpaper changers want to force you into old sizes and resolution, this tool accepts images of your choice, except tif. is simple to use, and has a friendly interface

    Updated on May 12, 2012

    when Right clicking icon to open manager, the manager opens behind other apps. would be nice to have it open on top of other apps

    i like simplicity, and ScrollWall is simple. it is now part of my system build

    "If you need constant change, this one's for you!"

    February 01, 2010   |   By damienstadler

    Version: ScrollWall 1.2

    Pros

    You can bulk select images in a simple interface, set them to default as stretch, center or tile (or set them individually), set it to change after booting or any timer imaginable...As soon as I put this to work, my wife demanded it too! This works!!

    Cons

    It takes a while for the interface to load the super-hi-res images from the Hubble telescope that I use as a rotating desktop--on a Pentium 3. Not really a surprise. Also, it only works with JPEGs GIFs and BMPs. Not so bad, but the Hubbles were TIFs.

    Summary

    This program works great. It does exactly what it's supposed to with great efficiency, and the only sign is a tiny flicker on the title bar (nowhere else that I noticed) when it actually changes. I will be keeping this on my list of programs to always keep on my computer, as well as the list to tell everyone I know about.
