    What is this wallpaper?


    I have an Alienware 17 computer that I recently reinstalled Windows 8 on because of a hard drive failure.

    However, I can't find the wallpaper that I always used. I'm pretty sure it came with the computer because I don't look for wallpapers online.

    All I have is the screenshot I took to remember where my icons were.
    Does anyone know where this wallpaper came from?

    I use a Microsoft account.
    After reinstalling my OS my wallpaper appeared automatically.

    Do you use a Microsoft account ?

    I'm assuming your resolution is the same as your screenshot.. It's not perfect, but I edited out your icons.. I spent 30mins looking for it online as I used to have those but yielded no luck so decided to do some Photoshopping for ya

    Thank you Jarminx.

    I actually found it recently while repairing a few old computers at the company I work for. The screenshots are Dell default wallpapers (that apparently aren't even included on Dell OEM discs).

    I'll attach the images for anyone who might want them.
