    How to put a background on YouTube

    You are interested in understanding how to put wallpaper on youtube, going to act on your channel? It's child's play! I anticipate, however, that this is feasible only and exclusively by computer, or rather from the Web. From mobile, at the time of writing this guide, this is not yet possible.

    That said, to succeed in your intent, the first steps you need to take are to open the browser you usually use to surf the Net (eg. Chrome), go to the YouTube home page and, if you have not already done so, log in to your Google account by clicking on the button Log in located at the top right and typing the login credentials in the appropriate fields.



    Once logged in, click on tua photo situata in alto a destra e seleciona la voce Your channel from the menu that appears, in order to go to your YouTube channel. At this point, click on the button Customize channel and click sul bottone Add channel graphics.

    In the box that you see appear on the screen, if you want to use as a background an image saved on your PC or a graphic created ad hoc, select the tab Upload photosclick on your button Select a photo from your computer, take the file from your workstation and then select it. Alternatively, you can drag the image directly into the navigator window.

    If, on the other hand, you want to use photos that have already been uploaded previously, move to the tab Your Photos and select the reference image from the gallery. You can also select ready-to-use wallpapers by going to the tab Gallery and choosing the one you prefer from the proposed list.



    Once you've selected the image to use as your wallpaper, you'll see a preview of what the final result will look like on computers, TVs and mobile devices. If it doesn't suit you, you can crop the selected photo by clicking the button Crop the photo and moving and resizing the selection rectangle placed on the image as you think is more appropriate. Once the changes are complete, click on the button Device preview.

    To conclude, click on the button Select which is located at the bottom and the chosen wallpaper will be immediately applied to your channel. It was easy right?

    Keep in mind that if you have second thoughts about the background set, you can change it at any time, by going back to the page dedicated to your channel as I have indicated in the previous lines, by clicking on the button with the pencil located at the top right of the screen by choosing the option Edit the channel graphics from the menu that opens and proceeding in a similar way to how I explained earlier.

    How to put black background on YouTube

To find out more, please continue reading.


    From computer

    If you want to find out how to put black background on YouTube by acting from the Web, the first steps you need to make are to start the browser that you usually use to browse the Net (eg. Chrome) and go to the YouTube home page. At this point, if you haven't already done so, log in to yours Google account, by clicking on the button Log in at the top right and entering the login credentials in the appropriate fields.


    Once logged in, click on tua photo that you find in the upper right part of YouTube, select the item Dark theme: disabled from the menu that opens and brings up ON l'interruttore che trovi accanto alla voce Dark theme, in the box that you later see appear at the top right.

    Note that the dark theme is only set for the current browser. So, if you connect to YouTube, with the same account, from a different browser, you will have to repeat the above steps to enable its use.

    Also keep in mind that once the dark theme is active it is permanent, i.e. it does not change automatically when the time of day or ambient lighting conditions change.

    If you want, however, you can deactivate the dark theme when you do not deem it necessary to use it, by clicking again on tua photo at the top right, by selecting the item Dark theme: activated from the menu and bringing up OFF l'interruttore accanto alla voce Dark theme.


    Give smartphone and tablet

    If, on the other hand, you want to find out how to put the black background on YouTube from smartphones and tablets, going to act on the service app available for Android and iOS / iPadOS, the first step you need to take is to grab your device and unlock it. Next, go to the home screen and select theicona dell'applicazione (Quella with the red background and the white Play symbol in the center).

    Now that you see the main screen of the app, if you haven't already signed in to yours Google account, proceed by selecting the appropriate item and providing the requested credentials. If you are already logged in with your Google account on your device, in settings or through other apps, you will be asked to select the profile you want to use.


    In Seguito, fai tap sulla tua photo at the top right and, in the new screen displayed, touch the wording Settings. If you are using Android, also tap on the item Generali. Finally, carry on ON l'interruttore che trovi accanto alla voce Dark theme and the game is done.

    Keep in mind that, even in this case, the activation of the dark theme is valid only and exclusively for the current device. This therefore means that, if you open the YouTube app on another device connected to the same account, you will have to carry out all the above steps from scratch.

    Another thing that I invite you to consider regarding the dark theme is that, also with regard to the app, once activated it is permanent and does not change when the time of day or the ambient lighting conditions change.

    By virtue of what has been said, therefore, you will have to be the one to deactivate the dark theme, when you do not consider it essential, by selecting the tua photo at the top right of the app's main screen, the voice Settings from the menu that appears and, subsequently, bringing up OFF the switch next to the wording Dark theme.
