    Background Picture


    Hi there. When I go into Settings and set the Background picture/slideshow, I always see letters on the sample screen, like 'Aa' and 'Sample Text'. What can you do with that? I don't find any explanations anywhere. Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply, BunnyJ. Don't know what can be done? Why is Settings showing them?

    They are samples of what your accent colors will look like according to choice.

    Thanks, Edwin. You supplied the screenshot. I suppose underneath the word 'Preview' it would represent your start screen. The other rectangle by itself, that says 'Sample Text' must be an app as highlighted or accented with the color. Now I understand. BTW, I like the fact that the colors change every so often.
