We offer a wide array of fun and artistic backgrounds to choose from. Just follow these simple steps to change your background to one that suits your mood or style.

To change your background image:

1. Go to www.aol.com.

2. In the upper-right corner, click "Change Canvas". A list of options will open at the top of the screen.

3. Setting your background image is as easy as one click on the preview thumbnail in the image chooser. Want more options? Scroll left or right to see more.

That's it! Your background has been changed.

What you need to know about saving this setting:

If you want to ensure that you see this new background image every time you sign in to AOL.com, you will need to set this image after you are signed in on the page.

If you delete your browser cookies, your background will change as it gets pushed into default random mode. If this happens, all you need is to sign in and you will see the image you selected when you last signed in.

Hint: Did you try the "Surprise Me" setting? Select this option and we'll surprise you with a new background image every time you visit AOL.com!
