Given how often we open new tabs in Google Chrome, it’s easy to get bored with a single background image. Luckily, Chrome lets you automatically change the New Tab Page wallpaper every day. Here’s how to set it up.

First, launch Google Chrome browser on your Windows 10, Mac, Chrome OS or Linux computer. Next, open a new tab and click on the “Customize” button in the lower right corner.

In the pop-up window that appears, make sure you are in the “Background” section.

On the “Background” page, you will find a number of predefined collections of backgrounds, such as “Textures”, “Landscapes”, “Art” and “Earth”. Google Chrome can automatically apply a new wallpaper from one of these collections every day on your new tab page.

So let’s say you want Google Chrome to show a new wallpaper from the “Earth” collection on your new tab page. To do this, first click on the collection thumbnail in the grid.
