On Xbox, you’ll soon be able to set Microsoft Edge pictures as your home screen background


The Xbox Insider program gives testers the chance to dive in and experience new (and potentially buggy) Xbox OS versions, before they become available to the general public. Rolling out to Insiders soon as part of the Alpha Skip Ahead Ring is a brilliant new feature that will make choosing a new Xbox Dashboard background much easier.

share By Xbox Tech Manager on Twitter, the new update lets Xbox users customize their Xbox dashboard background using the built-in Microsoft Edge browser, which also picks up an update taking support this feature.

  1. Open Microsoft Edge and update it through the store if necessary.
  2. hurry Yes to enter an address. We recommend that you check WallpaperHub.app for that.
  3. Find an image you like and then press the button Start button on your controller (looks like three lines) to open a context menu.
  4. To select Set as background using the A button, and voila.

Recently, Microsoft has also added a variety of new animated backgrounds to the dashboard that users can play with, including a fiery scene from Wasteland 3’s Cult of the Holy Detonation nuclear expansion, a Halo Infinite view, and a Xbox 360 inspired concentric rings background. With this latest addition, it will become even easier to pull whatever you want from the web and make it your own background.
