The home screen background and theme are a powerful way to personalize your gaming setup. By choosing a visually appealing backdrop that reflects your style and preferences, you can create a gaming environment that feels like home. Unfortunately, Sony has decided to remove the ability to change your ps5 background on the console itself. However, there are still a few ways to customize the console and make it feel more like your own.

If you want to change the background on your PS5 without using a third-party application, you can do so by navigating to the home screen and selecting the Settings icon. Here, you will be able to select from several pre-installed backgrounds. If you don’t want to use the built-in options, you can also download a variety of themes from the PlayStation Store to enhance the look and feel of your console.

However, it is important to note that the home screen background only applies to the menus and home screen of the console and does not affect the in-game backgrounds while playing. Also, the default home screen background music is not a configurable option and is played every time you navigate to the Home screen.

Another option to customize the look of your PS5 is to create a custom wallpaper. To do this, you will need a high-resolution image that you can edit in an image-editing software such as Photoshop or GIMP. You can find high-quality images from a number of websites, including Pixabay and WallpaperHub.
