How to disable or change Edge Background Image?

Microsoft Edge comes as an inbuilt browser in Windows 10. You might have noticed that Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browse displays a background image on the new tab page when using an inspirational or informational page layout. However, if you will use a focused page layout, then the picture will be missing from the Edge browser.
