Spotlight for Windows Desktop adds the Windows Spotlight wallpapers to your desktop, and adds Spotlight to lockscreen on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Includes a GUI and Control Panel integration for easy configuration. Spotlight for Windows Desktop automatically downloads and images from the Windows Spotlight API on a regular basis and changes your desktop and lock screen images. Spotlight for Windows Desktop uses the same API used by Windows 10, providing the exact same images that a Windows 10 computer receives.
