    Hey everyone.
    Does anyone know how to stop a selected wallpaper from changing position when swiping through the home screen pages?
    It annoys me that the wallpaper doesn't stay centered on the screen on every home screen page. I really want my selected wallpaper to remain in the same exact position (stationary) no matter what page I'm on. This was never an annoyance on BB10.
    I'm using BlackBerry Launcher on my Motion.
    Thanks for any help with this.

    BlackBerry Launcher is the issue. If I recall correctly, there's no way to stop it unless you change launchers.

    Thanks for the info. What Launcher do you recommend?

    - Action Launcher
    - Lawnchair
    - Nova Launcher
    - Micorosoft Launcher

    All great options, personally I use Lawnchair but it has wallpaper issues as well where it doesn't always keep the setting, but it's just something I deal with because I like the rest of it.

    Use a picture that is the correct resolution: 1920 x 1080 (actually 1080 x 1920)
    My wallpaper does not scroll when I change pages.
    Use this pic as a test if you like.

    I use Paint Shop Pro. Post the pic if it's not personal, I'll take a look at it.
    Sounds like it might be a square pic, which will scroll.

    This image is a bit off center but I was able to correct it using the native editor when selecting it for my wallpaper. But as I mentioned, it does not stay stationary when I swipe through my home pages.
    If you can help I'd appreciate it.Home Screen Wallpaper help.-1781464789.jpeg

    Very small pic, only 640 x 640, which is definitely your problem.
    Have one similar so I use it on lock screen only.
    I'll see what I can do, but doubt it can be changed a lot.

    Yeah sorry. I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to photos & photography type stuff. In the past I've always just found an image I liked & tried to plug it in. If it worked then great but it there was problems I would just have to find another image. I'm trying to stick with this one though if possible.

    You don't have to change the Launcher.. Set the wallpaper with a default App and it won't move on you. I use Quick Pic..

    I'm not sure what you mean to do exactly. But I installed QuickPic, opened it, selected my preferred pic, set it as my home screen wallpaper but it still continues to move as I swipe through my home pages.

    Open up the QuickPic App, find the picture you want and then set it with QuickPic Wallpaper.. Then tap the upper purple box.

    Either I have the wrong "QuickPic" app or you have an earlier version of it. The one I installed is QuickPic - Photo Manager developed by bokx.

    This is what it looks like when I try to set the wallpaper. I don't get the choice of sizes either.Home Screen Wallpaper help.-screenshot_20190204-230112.jpegHome Screen Wallpaper help.-screenshot_20190204-230117.jpeg

    App icon looks like this.. You can use any Gallery App, I use QuickPic because it allows you to set larger pictures.

    It was as that's where I got it, I think they just changed the name. Really not sure but you can use any Gallery app, just don't use the system settings to set the wallpaper and don't use Google Photos.

    You can zoom the photo you want to use as your wallpaper and do a screenshot on the part you want to use as it.
    Then, use the screenshot you did as your wallpaper. No need for launchers or any other complicated issue.

    Hope it helps!
