Stare at your desktop no more with stunningly simple life hack
Tired of looking at your monitor? Look through it (sort of)
Life hacks and tips to streamline how you computer are ubiquitous online, but every now and again one comes along so obvious you can't understand why you haven't been doing it all along.
This is one of these.
Change your desktop wallpaper to a photo of what's behind it and it's like you're looking out a window.

"I got sick of looking at my desktop, so now I look through it," the inventor of the trick wrote on Reddit, though it would probably work better if you had a nicer view.
A window seat would be preferable too, as things could get awkward if a colleague sits directly behind your monitor.
