Vista’s DreamScene

Have you heard of the Windows Vista DreamScene? If not, allow me to tell you a little about it!

The Vista DreamScene is a tool that allows people to use videos and other optimized animations as desktop wallpapers. It’s included with the Windows Vista Ultimate Extras package and it can be downloaded through the Windows Update service. The best part about DreamScene is the fact that it uses your video card for its display and not your processor. Therefore, your PC will still have enough resources available for performing other tasks. You can use any video for your wallpaper, as long as it’s saved in the .wmv or .mpeg format.

DreamScene is now available and if you use the Windows Vista Ultimate edition, you can begin customizing your desktop today! Simply follow the steps below to get DreamScene installed on your computer. Again, before you continue, make sure you have the Windows Vista Ultimate edition. The Vista DreamScene cannot be installed on any other version. Here we go!

1.) Click on Start, type “Windows Update” in the search box and then hit Enter.

2.) Once the Windows Update loads, click Check for Updates.

3.) Under the Ultimate Extras section, check the Windows DreamScene option and hit Install.

4.) After the Windows DreamScene is installed, you may need to reboot your computer.

5.) After you reboot, right click on your desktop and select Personalize.

6.) Next, click on Desktop Wallpaper.

7.) Hit the Browse button and select the video file you would like to use. Then hit OK.

When you’re finished, you will be able to enjoy one of your personal videos as your wallpaper. It doesn’t get any better than that! If you still have some questions, you can take a tour through DreamScene to learn more about it. Click here to do that and then just follow the instructions provided in the video. Once you’re more familiar with DreamScene, I know you’re just going to love it!
