The set of retro backgrounds was created by Microsoft’s designers to add some excitement to remote working and video calls, because “a little trip down memory lane can be good for the soul”.
The other three images are similar throwbacks. The classic time-killing card game Solitaire, which since its release in 1990 has been one of the most-played video games of all time, has been recreated in 3D. An homage to old-school creative app Microsoft Paint shows a brush escaping to smear paint across the virtual walls.
The best might be the recreation of the Windows XP default wallpaper, which shows gently rolling hills and a bright blue sky. The new version has included a sprinkling of tiny dandelions – perfect to soothe nerves during stressful meetings.
