    How to disable Edge background image?


    Microsoft Edge v111.0.1661.62

    Does anyone know how to disable background image?
    In the past it was easy, but it seems that almost with every update Microsoft is introducing something new layout thing that you do not want and you have to waste time on trying to get back what you are used to.

    Tried with customize background - change it to 'Off' but that options seems to have removed(?)

    LATER

    Not sure how, but after trying and trying I finally got back the layout that I had.
    Regretfully, the 'turtle' background came back again... sigh..

    How can you disable the background image?

    One option: research how to set about:blank as your start page.

    Depends what you want on your start page.

    It is the newtab page
    edge://settings/startHomeNTP
    then New Tab Page [Customize] at the bottom
    then Edit Background
    then switch off
    I get what want, but after reload, background is 'On' again.
    doesn't stick...

    Thanks. I'll try to remember that.

    After all fruitless attempts yesterday, I did not go on anymore, trying to 'fix' this.
    Peculiarly enough the layout that I was used to got back today.

    My settings:

    No idea what happened though.
    No version update.

    Anyway, thanks again.
