When I only knew how to use microsoft paint,I was creative and made a system for myself for the evergrowing problem of being bored with a wallpaper for windows.My system was I take a drawing of kitts monitor banks I made in mspaint and have 2 pics up there each week in the area of his 2 screens.Now that I know how to use Adobe Illustrator ,a few web design softwares,and Adobe Photoshop,I decided to upgrade a few old ideas.I remade kitts monitor banks part of the dash and whenever you get bored of what you see inside the 2 screens you simply take the template into ms paint,then you crop 2 pics you want to see in the screens.Save it as your wallpaper each week.

Here is the accurate pic of kitts monitor banks

Here is the template you will need to take into ms paint
Here is my first weeks background wallpaper.

Thank you.For a w hile there I thought the cactus bush fly by when no one replied.Anyon feel this is difficult to do to cropp over a template and replace the 2 screens?You simply save it as week1 week 2 and so on.You keep a copy of the template and you do it whenever you feel board of the 2 pics.

That'd be quite cool but I think I'm more content with having pics of girls on my desktop than KITT's monitors.

You could always develop this further into a standalone application, where you could load up the program, double-click on the monitor and it'll allow you to look through your PC for a pic that it would then crop/resize to suit the monitor.

Or you could always have a 'desktop of the week' thing going on and have a new wallpaper every week or so for people to download and use.

Nice work though
