How to personalize your Google Chrome homepage with any GIF

I spend a lot of time trying to personalize every aspect of my laptop: pasting stickers on the top, separating all of my icons into folders on my desktop, and, thanks to a little trick I learned on TikTok, using my favorite GIFs as backgrounds on Google Chrome.

It’s a super simple process that makes using Google Chrome feel a little more personalized. All it takes is a few seconds and you go from having a dreary white non-background like this:

to this very good GIF of Marceline performing a song in Adventure Time.


To customize your own Google Chrome page, here’s what to do:

  • Find any GIF you want to use. Right-click to bring up the drop-down menu.
  • After selecting the “Save As” option, make sure to add “.PNG” after the name
  • Under “Format,” change it from GIF to “All Files.” It should look something like the image below.

When you right-click on an image to save, this is the box that appears. Note the name scheme in the save as field, and the “All Files” option in the format drop-down box.

  • Next, open up a new Google Chrome tab page, and click on the “Customize” option in the bottom right-hand corner. The icon looks like a tiny pen or wand.
  • You’ll be greeted with this display. Click “Upload from device,” and find the GIF that you’ve saved as a PNG.

This is the customize page that opens when you right-click on the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of a new tab page.

  • And now, your Google Chrome page should play the GIF!


The final product!
