What Will You Need?

To set your Chromebook’s wallpaper, you will need the following things.

A Chromebook with the latest ChromeOS version.

If you want to set customised wallpaper, you will need the latest version of ChromeOS. If you have the older version, then it might be possible that the steps described in this guide won’t apply to you. So, update your ChromeOS version.

Permission to access the ChromeOS settings app.

You will require permission to access the ChromeOS settings app if you want to change your Chromebook wallpaper. Generally, most account holders have the relevant permission to access it without any issue. However, if you don’t have it, contact your IT admin or a relevant person to provide you access by changing the settings.

Your favourite wallpaper downloaded from the internet or the Settings app

Usually, you can change the wallpaper by using the images that you see in the settings app or the images that you have downloaded from the internet.

An Android app to download wallpaper.

It is completely optional, and we don’t advise it to use because this might not always work. You can use Android apps like Walli, Backdrops-Wallpapers, Walpy, etc., to download wallpapers and apply them automatically. However, these apps are for Android, not for ChromeOS. Therefore, it might be possible that it might not help you automatically apply your downloaded wallpaper.
