On Windows 11, you can now set up HDR wallpaper to give your HDR monitor the look and feel you desire. HDR wallpaper uses .jxr file extension (Joint Photographic Experts Group Extended Range). Unlike regular image formats like JPEG or PNG, JXR is designed to accommodate the wider color gamut and greater contrast found in HDR content. That means, the wallpaper preserves the intricate details and rich colors of the images. If your monitor supports HDR content, you can set up a .jxr image as a desktop wallpaper on Windows 11. In fact, the process of setting up HDR wallpaper on Windows 11 is virtually similar to changing a normal wallpaper.
In this tutorial, let me guide you through the process of setting up HDR wallpaper on Windows 11.
Important note: Your monitor or laptop should support HDR content.
