Apple likes to throw in some hidden features into its software now and then, and they have done so in their latest iteration of OS X Mavericks once more. Maybe it’s after the theme of being hidden inside of a wave, much like you would be out of the real Mavericks, or maybe they have gotten back some of that playful spirit they were known for once upon a time.

If you do get bored with the stock wallpaper that are on offer as standard, you will be pleased to know that there is some hidden ones’ that you can use by following these simple steps.

1. Start up your Mac and let the desktop load. From here press and hold Command+Shift+G.

This will have opened the applications menu.

2. Where it gives you a chance to type in a new folder, type this in the field: /Library/Screen Savers/Default Collections/

3. The new themes will now be presented to you on the screen. You should see 4 individual folders, each with a lot more personal ones’ inside of them.

Changing the desktop background image on a computer or laptop is something we should all delve into from time to time. No matter how much you like one particular picture, often over a year or so people are ready to change. If you’re the type of person who normally puts up personal hobbies instead, then that is fine too. But if you ever run out, or would like that true Apple Mac feel, be sure to check out the extras available behind the scenes here.
