The recently released Mac OS X Mavericks comes with many fantastic looking wallpapers that are built-in to the system. But, there are also some hidden high-res wallpapers that were previously introduced in Mac OS X Mountain Lion that are still available in Mac OS X Mavericks. These 43 high-res wallpapers (each with a whopping 3200 × 2000 resolution) include stunning shots from National Geographic.
Locating these wallpapers is fairly simple as long as you know where to look. Just follow the simple instructions below to uncover these stunning wallpapers.
Access the Hidden Wallpapers in Mac OS X Mavericks
First, go to your desktop, then press and hold the [command]+[shift]+[G] keys to open the Go to Folder menu.
Once the Go to Folder menu appears, enter “/Library/Screen Savers/Default Collections/” in the field provided, and then click Go.
A new window that contains 4 folders (National Geographic, Aerial, Cosmos, and Nature Patterns) of wallpapers will now appear. These folders will contain the 43 hidden high-res wallpapers.
Copy these folders to a location you prefer. Preferably somewhere you can easily access.
From there, you can set a new desktop background from any of the hidden wallpapers you have uncovered.
