There are many different types of abstract wallpapers along with different shapes and colors. Take a look at the wallpapers in this guide to find a cool one for your computer.

    Purple Floral Abstract Wallpaper

    Purple Floral Abstract Wallpaper The first abstract wallpaper in this guide is the purple floral wallpaper. This is a really beautiful wallpaper that is relaxing and enchanting to look at. When you set it as your wallpaper, you can rearrange your desktop icons to be positioned in the bottom, right corner of your desktop. You may even want to change the icons to white if they aren't already. That will make a beautiful desktop.

    Blue Ocean and Moon Abstract Wallpaper

    Blue Ocean and Moon Abstract Wallpaper The next wallpaper is also very relaxing and beautiful. In this abstract wallpaper is an ocean and a moon in the background. To use this wallpaper as your desktop's wallpaper, you will definitely have to go with a light color for your icons on your desktop. If you go with a darker color, it will be really hard to see with this dark wallpaper.

    Heart and Wings Abstract Wallpaper The next wallpaper in our list was created in Photoshop. The wallpaper is a glass heart with white wings and flames coming off of the heart.

    Butterfly and Paint Splatters Abstract Wallpaper

    Butterfly and Paint Splatters Abstract Wallpaper The last abstract wallpaper in this list is a butterfly. The background of the wallpaper is different shades of blue. The butterfly is also blue and there are paint splatters on the background and butterfly. If you have a lot of icons on your desktop, this wallpaper will probably not work that well. Since there is so much artwork in this wallpaper, it would make it difficult to see some icons if you have a lot. You may have to clean up your desktop beforehand.
