How Do I Change The Theme In My Gmail Account?
Sometimes you just accept the way things are, especially if you don’t realize that a better way of doing things is possible. For instance, have you ever sat down next to someone who has logged into their email account and seen a really creative background on their screen? I’m not talking about a screen saver, I’m talking about a theme for the email account.
For instance, I did not know that Google mail had come out with some really fun themes for Gmail. They have about 30 choices right now to pick from. I found out about this new feature in Google by sitting next to someone working in their Gmail account. I asked them how they got rid of their ugly “classic” background and they showed me how they did it. I’ve never looked back. :o)
Whenever I have a new gmail signup, I immediately go to the Settings option and change the theme for my Gmail account. I especially like the Tea House and Ninja themes because they are eye catching and they make me smile whenever I go into my account. My daughter really loves pink so her favorite is the Cherry Blossom. She even has a big Cherry Blossom tattoo on her ankle. Now that’s a serious pink lover.
Here is a picture of the “Classic Gmail Theme”.
So let me show you how to brighten your day and add a smile on your face every time you log into your Gmail account. By the way, there are themes for the creative, feminine and masculine user, so don’t worry you have quite a few choices to pick from.
Let’s start with the location of the options you need to change in order to get a new theme. First you must log into your Gmail account. In the upper right corner you will see a Settings link. Click on it.
Next you will see the Themes option - and the various other Setting choices in your Gmail.
After you click on the Themes option, you will be able to choose from the various options that are available as shown below in the two screen shots.
From this point all you have to do is click on which theme interests you. You may occasionally be asked to enter a city name on a theme, so just do so. The city does not make any difference in your theme. Here are pictures of some of the choices available. The first is my daughter’s favorite, the Cherry Blossom theme.
Next is my favorite, the Ninja theme.
Now for those of you that prefer an earthier choice there is the Pebbles Theme, which is also shown in the “Settings” picture above.
If you get bored with any theme, all you have to do is go back into your Settings and change it. I hope this information has been helpful for all you “newbie” Gmail account users. Have fun with your new Themes!
