The U.S. Army Center of Military History (CMH) maintains a large
collection of original artwork and prints. In an attempt to make more
users aware of these unique collections, many will be processed
into screensavers and desktop backgrounds (wallpapers) designed
for use on Windows-based computers. Available collections will be
noted on this page, with additions being made as time permits.


Backgrounds:

The Wallpaper files have been formatted for three major screen resolutions (640x480, 800x600, and 1024x768). After "right-clicking" on the appropriate link for your monitor resolution you will be given the option to save the file to the hard drive of your computer. After saving it, the user can select their background images through the 'Display' options in Control Panel, or by right-clicking on their desktop and selecting 'Properties' option. Depending on the location that you have saved the file to, you can select the desired images by using the "Browse" option in the 'Display Properties' window to change to the specified directories.



 Screensavers:

The Screensaver files have been formatted for three major screen resolutions (640x480, 800x600, and 1024x768), some are offered with sound files components. All screensaver files are provided as self-extracting ".exe" files (with the sound versions being identified with a "-s" in the filename). After "right-clicking" on the appropriate link for your monitor resolution you will be given the option to save the file to the hard drive of your computer. After saving the files simply double click on them and the files will copy to any machine running the Windows operating system and set themselves as the default screensaver.
