Just bought a new Lumia? Here are 5 quick and easy ways to personalize your device. If you want to have more than just the default tiles and effects, you can change the settings and customize your phone to look the way you want.
To personalize the lock screen and add a picture of your own as the background you just have to go to settings, then lock screen, background, then photo. You can then click the ‘change photo’ button, select the photo you want, and adjust it to get the best possible fit. Tap the ‘done’ icon to complete the change.
If you want to pin an app to the start screen swipe left, tap and hold the app you wish to move, then tap ‘pin to start.’ You can also pin contacts and websites, so if you like to play mobile casino, you can add a shortcut to your start screen for quick access. If you want to move a tile you simply hold, drag, and drop it to its new location. If you want to resize, just press and hold on an tile, then tap the narrow icon.
Changing your background or accent color is also easy. Go to settings, then theme. Select your background or accent color of your choice.
If you want to change the font size, you will need to go to settings, ease of access, and then drag the text size slider to make your font choice.
To change your ringtone, go to settings, ringtones+sounds, then select the type of ringtone or alert you want to change.
