Does the custom background feature have a file size Limit?

I want to change my background but when I try it doesn’t switch. Maybe the file size is too big? (24MB)jpeg.

Hi and welcome to the community. Can you please provide your Brave and OS version displayed at brave://version which will help either a community member (like me) or support staff troubleshoot your issue.

I am going to provide additional information that may help.

That is huge and that may be your problem. I could not locate any information per file size limits. To test if the file size may be the problem:

  • Have you tried reducing the size?
  • Have you tried a different background that is smaller?

These two topics also had issues saving background images. Are either of them related to your issue?

Why i can’t save customize dashboard background image
Issue with Surface Pro

The background image option does not appear in the dashboard how to solve
Issue with Brave language version

My Brave is up to date and I use Windows 11
I did come to a solution where I went to the file and took a screenshot of it using the snipping tool and used it. I did have other files around 7-14MBs and they worked. So I think the limit is around 15-17MBs

Glad you were able to load the background even if you didn’t get a definitive answer to your topic question. Take care. :smiley:
