Is there a way to change the default background image of the new tab page?I want to be able to use there one of my choosing.

If there isn't one then

Can i somehow make the image of the day to stop changing and to be the same every day?

@Tavory I think this is a feature that will be added in the upcoming updates. For now, it's not possible.

until they get it ready, you could try these extensions, cause it's unknown when it's gonna be added to Edge

you can also turn off the daily images completely using the custom layout.

Try to set it like this, then the scrolling won't bring news feed again
