1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize.

2. Select Desktop Background.

3. From the Location dropdown, select Windows DreamScene Content.

4. Select the video that is to become your background.

5. Click OK.

To Select from your own Videos:

2. Select Desktop Background.

3. From the Location dropdown, select Videos or Public Videos or Browse to the location of your video file.

4. Select the video that is to become your background.

5. Click OK.

You can also use Windows Explorer to browse to the video file, right-click the file and select Set as Desktop Background.
