If you tap on the three-dot icon right on the top-right corner of a Chrome browser page, head to the settings, and select Appearance from the side panel, also you can check out the Chrome web store for colorful and artistic themes you can apply. Also, you can type “color” right into the settings search bar for you to customize your Chrome profile by picking a basic theme hue.

Under the Themes page, any given category has a collection of background images that you can apply to your Google Chrome home screen. If you have a specific one that you like, you can click on it and see it immediately reflected to the left of the customization sidebar. In addition, you can switch the “Refresh daily” toggle on so that a new default background image shows up every day.
