Hello Funnyguy,

After changing the background, it creates a new theme. You would just need to save it as a new theme. That's all.

You need to change the background first, then save it.

Each time you change the background, you will then have a "Unsaved Theme" as your new current theme that you would click on "Save theme" for afterwards to give it a name and save it.
