How do I change my Canvas on my Welcome Screen?

Looking to spice up your Welcome Screen? Well, we've got you covered! You can change your Canvas any time you like. Customizing your own 'AOL Home' has never been easier.

To change your background image:

1. On the Welcome Screen, in the upper right-hand corner, click Change Canvas. A Choose your Favorite Canvas menu will open at the top of the screen.

2. Select your desired Canvas from the available options. If you would like to have a random Canvas appear every time you load the Welcome Screen, select the Surprise Me option. Feel free to select different Canvases to preview them on the Welcome Screen.

3. Once you have selected your desired Canvas, click Close. Your Canvas selection will stay as is unless you change it later on.


  • If you ever clear your cache and/or cookies, you will need to re-select your Canvas option.
  • For more information on the Welcome Screen Canvases, check out our Blog.
