How to access live wallpaper settings




How to access live wallpaper settings? (theme or color selection etc.)

In ALL my previous phones it was possible, but in my S10e I cannot find any way to get there.


Thanks for help.


Hope that this is not next of Samsung "improvement" like no increasing volumes etc...


Hi @5ta1da ,


Can you tell us more about this one?


Are you meaning the Live Wallpapers (in other words, the animated ones) you can apply to the S10e's Lock screen? 


Which phones did you get to those settings on - and how did you do it?

 Say "Hello!" to the Community in The Introduce Yourself Thread.


Install (for example) this live wallpaper


App have themes which are switchable via settings.

How to go to settings: After installing app click on notification and run app. It shows list of installed live wallpapers. Select installed one. Preview will show up with three-dots menu with settings option. -> THIS IS RIGHT.


But how to access this options menu from the system itself?


Let's try: Long tap on screen, Wallpaper, Show all, three-dot menu, live wallpapers - it shows similar dialog as in the previous try, but there is NO settings aviable and you can only select where to use selected live wallpaper (home screen or home screen + lock screen).


So, this is the problem.


Another of my favourites - Xperia Loops - themed one, the same problem and probably all will be the same.

  1. long press the desktop on your home screen.
  2. select "wallpaper" in the lower left.
  3. select "My Wallpapers"
  4. select the vertical 3 dots button in the upper right.
  5. select "Live Wallpapers" (it should be the only selection)
  6. select the live wallpaper you're interested in configuring
  7. select the gear icon in the upper right.  these should be the settings you're looking for.

I am experiencing the same issue on my Galaxy S7, I am able to set the wallpaper but the gear you described is absent in all screens of the process, even tried tapping around to see if it was the same color as the background

Galaxy s7 - I had the same problem but after fiddling with my phone for a couple of hours, with much frustration, I finally figured it out and exploded with euphoria.


Choose a Live Wallpaper. At this point it doesn't matter which one. As long as one is active. 

Then go to Developer Options.

-Running Services

-In the list, choose the active Live Wallpaper.


-Live Wallpapers

-Choose Live Wallpaper of your choice and there you'll find the gear icon.


Enjoy customizing your Live Wallpaper!
