How to Change Wallpaper on Your Fire HD 8 Tablet

The best way to enjoy amazon content on the go is with an Amazon tablet. For around $90, you get the Fire HD 8 Tablet; an 8-inch device with a 1280×800 resolution and a sizable bezel, a decent processor, a 32GB onboard storage, and 2GB of RAM to stream video from your favorite streaming platforms like Netflix, YouTube, and Prime video, read your favorite books, kids’ games, and a lot more. 

Every Amazon tablet comes with a wallpaper pre-installed, and sometimes these wallpapers can feel really boring. The Amazon Fire HD 8 (10th gen), for instance, comes with a couple of pre-installed wallpapers that appear on the home screen as well as the lock screen, and other saved options to choose from. Thankfully, Amazon allows you to change the wallpaper on your Fire tablet to a preferred one. And in this article, we will be showing you how to do just that.

Until you disable the lock screen ads, your wallpaper will only appear on your home screen.
