Precisely Align Desktop wallpaper With Wallpaper Positioner For Windows

If you want to set an image you have taken as desktop background wallpaper, your Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC provides five preset options such as center, fill, fit, stretch and tile to fit it to the screen. But these five options isn’t enough if you want to make the wallpaper more precisely “aligned” on the screen or want to zoom in a portion of the image on the screen.

Wallpaper Positioner is a tiny, standalone application that provides more options for accurately positioning the wallpaper on your screen. This is especially useful if you want to highlight or zoom in a portion of the image as wallpaper on your screen.

Wallpaper Positioner provides three very simple but very practical localization methods – automatic, system and manual.

To use this tool just run it (no installation needed and currently supports Windows 7 only) and choose any of the three options.

The first option automatic mode provides 9 preset modes, through which you can put wallpaper location anywhere in the 9 blocks. (See below example when I select 3rd block)


The second mode is a system mode, which is the same as your PC provides.

The third is a custom mode, which lets you position the wallpaper more precisely on the screen by inputting values in XPos and YPos two coordinates. Note that, these two coordinates are in the upper left corner of the screen as a starting point (that is, (0, 0) coordinates).

You can download Wallpaper Positioner from developer’s website here.
