Xbox One’s November update will allow you to set custom backgrounds. But why wait? Get started now.


The Xbox One November update is already in the hands of testers, so Microsoft’s Larry Hryb has provided instructions on how to set them up.

For the rest of us, there’s no need to sit idle; a template has been provided allowing you to get to work in Photoshop putting together a snazzy backdrop for your dashboard.

Grab the template from Major Nelson’s blog. He’s invited creators to share their efforts in the comments, too.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
