Yes you can change this for all users from the Admin Center.  Go to Settings > Org Settings > Organization profile > Custom Themes.  You will see the following options to change your themes settings including the background.

Hi @PeterRising 



Does this not just change the banner? rather than the background?  


Also where does the logo image appear if I add one? 


Thanks for replying!

No, that will indeed change the background.  Further down the same page (next item in fact) is to change the banner (or navigation bar as it is labelled.


Logo appears at the top left of the page.



When I change the background to the requested pixels 1366 x 50 this squashes it down to a banner look?

Well it kinda is what it is I'm afraid.  :lol:

ahah fair enough @PeterRising 


why is it that I cant get a Jpeg to upload only JPG but cant seem to convert it to one. Changing the name doesnt work. If I do PNG I cant get the Kb less than 15! 


Any ideas?
