How do I set a really wide home screen as the home screen that as you swipe from page to page the background scrolls with it.

I swear it used to do this or I'm imagining it did.

Samsung Galaxy S6, Android 5.1.1 that came with the phone.

    Did you try the Nova launcher? It's a setting that depends upon your launcher. – Death Mask Salesman Mar 16 '16 at 22:02

    I just checked, and Nova allows you to set a wallpaper that gets scrolled whenever you swipe through your home screen. It can disable the scrolling, enable it, make it scroll in a reversed fashion, and force it on devices that doesn't support the feature. – Death Mask Salesman Mar 16 '16 at 22:08
  • Edit your question, to get answers, with-- what phone, version of Android, stock or custom rom, and what launcher you have. It's just vague as it stands – HasH_BrowN Mar 16 '16 at 23:56
  • Which launcher are you using? The settings aren't the same for all, that's why I suggested editing. – HasH_BrowN Mar 17 '16 at 17:44
  • I haven't changed anything since I got it. No rooting, no custom anything. I added my phone info. – 1.21 gigawatts Mar 18 '16 at 18:03

I didn't include any references as every site confirmed the information above. The list would be too large.
