Hi everyone, I recently created an open source tool called EasyWallpaperInfo for Windows. It is a simple widget that displays the information of your current desktop wallpaper, such as its title, resolution, file size and location. You can also cycle to the next wallpaper with a click or open the wallpaper in file explorer or your default image viewer.

EasyWallpaperInfo is a handy Python app that lets you explore your desktop wallpaper. With a simple and customizable widget, you can see your current wallpaper’s metadata title, filesize, resolution, and location on your screen. You can also cycle to the next wallpaper with a click, or open the wallpaper in file explorer or your default image viewer. EasyWallpaperInfo is a great tool for wallpaper enthusiasts who want to know more about their desktop backgrounds.
