How do I change the wallpaper on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone?
You can personalise your device by setting your own wallpaper. Your device includes a selection of wallpapers to choose from, or you can use one of the photos you've taken or downloaded.
Please note: if you wish to use a wallpaper or image from the Internet, you will need to download this onto your device first. You can usually do this by pressing and holding the image until you get a pop-up with the option Save Photo or Save Image. You will then find it in the Downloads folder, in My Files and in the Gallery. Ensure that you have permission to download or copy any image you download
After you have chosen where you want your wallpaper, you will be shown an example of what it will look like.
Pinch in or out to zoom or drag the image to change its position
Please note: you cannot change the position of downloaded wallpapers
Please note: if you don't see any options around your image, tap on the screen
After you have chosen where you want your wallpaper, you will be shown an example of how it will look.
Pinch in and out to zoom or drag the image around to change its position
