Theme settings for Minimal

You can use theme settings to customize the colors and typography on your online store. You can also set up links to your social media accounts, edit your cart settings, and add a favicon.

Layout

With Minimal, you can change the maximum width of your store from 1030px to a wide layout of 1340px. A wider layout allows for your images to be displayed at larger sizes, but also stretches your text.

Use a wider layout if you want to focus graphics instead of text.
