The default Desktop image, or wallpaper, has changed with every macOS major update. Mac OS X 10, as it was known back in the day, included a blue Desktop background with sweeping arcs. in 10.5 that became an aurora space cloud sort of thing, and in macOS 10.10 we started seeing mountains. All of those images are cool, and now you can use them as your desktop wallpaper in 5K resolution thanks to Stephen Hackett at 512 Pixels. He has all of Apple’s default Mac desktop pictures at high resolution ready to download and they all look great. Even if you’re happy with the desktop wallpaper you’re already using it’s cool to see these all together.
You might even find it easier than using an app.

I recently caught on to an app for macOS and Windows that takes the place of a good half-dozen other pieces of software. It’s been around for a while, but I’d overlooked it because of the name — Parallels Toolbox. I quite naturally assumed it related to running Windows in a virtual machine. I use VirtualBox for that. Boy, was I wrong! In fact, Parallels Toolbox is a one-stop app for quite a few great features. You can use it to take a screenshot, record a screen cast, or download your favorite video. That’s great for saving movies and other videos from YouTube or Facebook. Parallels Toolbox also gives you buttons to secure private files with a password, keep your computer from sleeping, or convert a video to a format you can view on your iOS device. It lives in your Mac’s menu bar, and is just a click away for all of those tools, and more. There’s a seven-day free trial, and then Parallels Toolbox is just US $9.99 per year. New tools are added frequently, so be sure to check it out and enjoy your all-in-one toolbox.
