Google background

  john bunyan 17:53 10 Jun 2010

Today Google has a massive pictorial background to the home page. There is an option in the bottom left to change it but this requires signing in etc. I Just want the old plain background and do not want to sign in etc.. Any ideas? (IE8, W7)

I quite like it for a change.

But I shouldn't go to a great deal of bother to try and remove it - Google are bound to change it again before long.

Thanks. Very annoying they did not include a simple delete backgroung option.Hope they will do so - I do not want to sign in.

As it says on march's link - just sign in to - gives you google uk without the background.

I wondered what everyone was talking about because I can't see it, then I realised I use iGoogle and it doesn't come up on there.

It's just gone back to normal 18.30 hours BST... and I miss it... looks very stark now.

Agree about the signing in bit... I read the Google info and actually put that on the feedback form why Google ??? why sign in ???
