Enable and Use Desktop Stickers on Windows 11

Microsoft has continued adding new features to Windows 11 and it seems like there’s no end, at least at this moment. Talking about new features, Windows 11 has added the functionality to add stickers on the desktops as the feature has arrived on Windows Insiders program carrying build number 22H2.

Microsoft is now paying just as much attention to the ways you can customize Windows as it is to the ways it works. Personalizing your computer makes your Windows OS experience better as a whole. Now, in Windows 11, you can put stickers on the background of your desktop.

To be exact, this feature is only available in Windows 11 version 22H2, so it is not yet available on the stable channel. So, if you want to try out these new stickers right now, you must be subscribed to the Insider Dev channel or the Beta channel.

Since the feature is still being tested, you have to turn it on before you can use these stickers. Today, we’ll show you how to turn on desktop stickers and add them to a Windows 11 computer.
