    In Bluestacks Android emulator under Windows, how do you change the wallpaper for the desktop? I have tried to "Set Background" or "Set Wallpaper" in various applications, and none of those ever has any effect on the default background image used in Bluestacks. I also don't see a native system setting for this.

    On an Android phone you can usually leave a touch depressed on any desktop and that puts you into a special mode where you can - among other things - create additional desktops and change the default wallpaper. I don't see how to perform that equivalent action on Bluestacks 3. Leaving the left-mouse button clicked / depressed for an extended time period does nothing.

    The background image is found in C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\Client\Assets and is named "fancybg.jpg ". Just change it for your own jpg file.

    Thank you. If you can believe it, the BlueStacks technical support was unable to answer such a simple question.
