Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: How to Change Home Screen Wallpaper in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

When needed, you can do some customizations to the home screen in your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, one of which is by changing its background image(we often call it as wallpaper). You can set other preloaded wallpaper as your home screen wallpaper when you're bored with your current wallpaper, or you can use your own picture as your home screen wallpaper when you want to have a unique wallpaper.


How to change the home screen wallpaper?
You can do so by using some different methods. As the example, we'll try changing the home screen wallpaper from a home screen and from the settings menu.


Method #1: From a home screen
You can change the background image of your home screen from a home screen by using the following steps:
  1. While you're in a home screen, pinch the screen using two fingers or long tap on an empty area to edit your home screen.
  2. Tap the Wallpapers button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap the drop down box at the top of the screen and then select Home screen.
  4. To use your own picture as the home screen wallpaper, do as follows:
    • Tap the From Gallery thumbnail at the bottom of the screen.
