One of the traditional ways we customize Windows 10 is by using different wallpapers , this can be achieved with the images saved locally on the computer with the images from the Bing search engine or automatically with different applications available for it. By customizing our wallpaper even at a corporate level, we will be differentiating our team from others and we will also feel more comfortable when working with backgrounds that provide us with good sensations..

 

As we change the wallpaper in Windows 10 , that history is recorded in the system and although it is not a critical issue it is possible that for security reasons or to free up space we want to erase this history, either complete or partial.
