If you have been using Google Chrome, you might come across the lack of an option to set any image as a wallpaper in Chrome. This has been an annoyance for hundreds and thousands of users and as MG from TechCrunch points out, a bug filed with Chromium about the issue has tons and tons of comments.
So how do you set an image as a wallpaper in Google Chrome? Quite simple, just use a new Chrome extension created by one of the Chromium developers to add this feature to Google Chrome. The extension is called, Set Image as Wallpaper and can be downloaded from here.
Once you download and install the extension you will get an option to set any image you come across in Google Chrome as a desktop wallpaper. Have fun. This only works in Windows right now with a Linux and Mac version under works.
If you are expecting this feature to be part of Google Chrome out of the box, you are in for a disappointment, it’s not going to happen. And it hardly matters anyways. Look at me, I didn’t even notice that it had been missing for past two years .
