Change the Background Picture of Google
Google is rolling out a feature that allows you to change the background picture of Google.com to a user defined image. Here’s how to customize your Google.com landing page background image.
Change the Google Background Image
* Go to Google.com and be sure you are logged into your Google account
* Hover over the bottom left corner of Google.com and click on “Change background image”
* Select an image either from the Public gallery, Editor’s picks, your Picasa album, or an image from your own computer
* Click ‘select’ and close the window.
Your Google.com background is now set to a custom image!
Google.com has long been very minimalist, but this is obviously taking a page from the Bing playbook. Bing has long included attractive images as the search engine home pages background picture, it’s not particularly functional it’s just attractive. I for one welcome the addition regardless of where it’s from, I’m big on customizing things whether it’s changing the login screen on my Mac or adjusting the background picture of the iPad.
Remove the Google Background picture
Removing the Google.com background wallpaper is just a matter of hovering over the lower left corner of the Google homepage and click on “Remove background image”
You can also use an alternate Google local search engine, set the custom background to white, and some other techniques to remove the Google background if you hate it.
