How Do I Set the Desktop Wallpaper In Photo 3.0?

I have some photos in Photos 3.0 and I used to be able to click the Share button and choose “Set to Desktop”. I didn’t see it in Photos 3.0. Did it move somewhere else? Did it not get developed for version 3.0?

* 2014 MacBook Pro (Retina display)
* macOS v10.13 (High Sierra)
* Photos 3.0 (3201.11.120)

    I still see that option. I can get to it both by clicking the Share button in the toolbar, and by using File, Share, Set Desktop Picture. Not sure why you are not seeing it.

    There are other ways to set the desktop picture. You can go to System Preferences, Desktop & Screensaver, Desktop, and then select the photo from there. It sometimes take a few seconds, but your entire Photos library will appear in the left on the left where you can select a moment, album, etc. You can also drag and drop anything into the photo right there.
