    Hello and welcome to EightForums, wayne1980.

    Are you speaking of the Start Screen? If so, you may want to look at this tutorial: Start Screen - Change Background Color and Image

    You may want to search this thread for customizing possibilities: Post your Start Screen!

    Please don't hesitate to ask how to do so there. I'm sure many members are willing to help.


    Hope that helps.
