I’m a sucker for pretty backgrounds. I don’t like to stare at the white space around my screen. I change my desktop background often – usually to some sort of nature picture or inspirational message. It is just part of creating my creative space.
My email is the same. The plain white background of my Google gmail is just too “quiet” for me. Currently, I have a mountain theme (because I love the mountains) as the background. I have helped many people with their computers, and I’ve noticed the plain white and I’ve wanted to show people how to change it. Here are step by step instructions to change your gmail background if you want:
- Open your gmail
- Click the little “gear” icon (top right corner)
- Click Themes
- Select any theme listed by clicking on it – your background will immediately change.
- Play with the colors and themes until you find one that suits you.
What about you? Do you like to have a clear background or do you like to “jazz” it up a little? Let us know in the comments!
I love to help people be more productive (and have more fun!) with their computers/technology. If you have computer organizing and how to questions, please Contact me!
