Desktop Stickers is a feature in Windows 11 that allows you to choose and edit stickers for your wallpaper when using a picture and choose Fill for your desktop background image.

Using the new sticker editor you can pick, place, and resize stickers as you like. It can be accessed through Settings or by right-clicking your desktop.

When you change your desktop background picture, your stickers will still remain.

The Desktop Stickers feature is currently not officially released to Windows 11 yet, but if you would like to give Desktop Stickers a play with now, you can enable Desktop Stickers in Windows 11 version 22H2 build 22621 and higher now.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Desktop Stickers for all users in Windows 11.


You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable Desktop Stickers.

DesktopStickerEditor is a Win32 app inside Client.CBS which creates a new background image by pinning PNG images over your current wallpaper. Because it leaves your original wallpaper untouched, it can update the background at any time.

The composite image is AppData\Local\Packages\MicrosoftWindows.Client.CBS_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\StickerComposed.jpeg

Inside the same folder is StickerCache.json, which reveals Windows is downloading PNG images from... Office!!
