So i was wondering why the "Image" setting under "Wallpaper" in "Appearance" in the settings isn't clickable and if i can make it clickable...

If you can help me, please explain step by step, i am new to the program.

Hello,

as far as I know, currently there's no way from within Lightworks to change the "Wallpaper".

With Lightworks shut down, in the folder "..\Ligtworks\Images", you can replace the file representing your display resolution (here "bg-1920x1080.png") with a file with the same dimensions (1920x1080) and format (PNG), but different content. Please make a copy of that folder, prior to starting any changes.

Bear in mind, this affects only classic Flexible layout, since there's no background image in default Fixed layout.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

I tested it for the first time now.

If I have previously chosen the flexible layout,

then I can choose any picture from my drive.

Personally, I would like to concentrate on the timeline, etc., and not be distracted from the background.

Because it's not available in your case, you seem to use the fixed layout. Because both layout settings are functionally different, reasons other than a wallpaper should influence your personal choice of interface layout(fixed or flexible).

Under fixed there is effectively no 'background' visible - all fixed layouts are wall-to-wall 'tools' which scale as required - with a specialised viewer tool capable of auto adjusting the active content area within the viewer frame - so even that is not a 'background' comparable to the Flexible layout's BG image setting
