The Galaxy Tab is maybe one of the most popular tablets available on the market, being Apple’s iPad biggest competitor. Samsung first released the Galaxy Tab back on September 2010 and since then, there were sold more than 2 million units (this assessment was made last year on January) worldwide. Since there are so many users who are dealing with such a device (after the initial launch, there were provided numerous versions of the Galaxy Tab) we decided to come with this tutorial, which is showing the easiest way in which you can change, or optimize the appearances of your tablet.
Therefore, during the present post, I will show you how to change the wallpapers from the Galaxy Tab tablet. Even though it might seem (for some of you) an easy task to do, I know that there are users who are having issues in completing this operation. In conclusion, during this tutorial you will be able to learn how to customize and change the wallpapers, the Live Wallpapers and how to apply your favorite photos and images as wallpapers. The procedure will take only a couple of minutes, so give it a try.
The process was tested on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, but the settings are usual the same for all the variants of the tablet. Also, the following are working only on the devices that are featuring the Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS.
Now, in order to change the Wallpapers, you have to go on any of your home screen (doesn’t matter which one you choose) from your tablet and tap it for two seconds, until a list of options will appear. Among the options list you will see the “Wallpaper” one; tap on it. Now a new options list will be displayed.
