Microsoft has just released a new wallpaper pack for Windows 10 users, providing them with more customization options on the desktop.

Called Hay Hay Hay, the wallpaper pack is offered as a free theme on the Microsoft Store, and it includes 18 different high-quality images. Despite being archived in a theme package, it’s important to note that all you get are the desktop backgrounds, so no sounds or other customization options are available now.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and newer are supported, so you must be running a Windows 10 version that still receives updates. Microsoft pulled the plug on the Creators Update earlier this month, and in case you haven’t upgraded your device to the Fall Creators Update or later, you must do this as soon as possible.

Without support, your Windows 10 version isn’t getting any patches, so in case vulnerabilities or issues are discovered in the OS, they wouldn’t be fixed.

Wallpapers and themes on the Microsoft Store

As for the wallpapers, you can easily install them from the Microsoft Store using the link above. To enable it, launch the Settings app and to go Personalization > Themes. In the drop-down menu, select Hay Hay Hay to change the wallpaper instantly.

You can then cycle between wallpapers using context menu options – just right-click the desktop and you can go to the next wallpaper.

Microsoft keeps releasing free themes and wallpapers for Windows 10 users regularly, and this can only be a good thing given that customization content has always been received well by the community of users.

Needless to say, you can always get your own desktop wallpaper from the million sources out there, as setting a new background only comes down to just a few clicks. However, Microsoft wants the Microsoft Store to become the one destination for everything, and releasing such content is part of the plan to convince more users to give it a try.
