How To Adjust Settings For Mobile, Tablet, and Desktop

Many editable features have a Mobile, Tablet, and Desktop settings.  Most common uses include: Text size, Margin and Padding of elements etc.

  2. Click the  device icon you need, to edit its settings. 

Even background images can be controlled independently on each device.

Responsive Background Images

Background images in Elementor are automatically device-responsive, but you also have control over more options for each device.

Controlling Responsive Background Images and Borders

  1. Background Image: You can choose a different background image for each device if needed, whether it is a size-appropriate version of the same image, or a completely different image altogether.
  2. Background Image Display Options: You can select a different image position, attachment, repeat, and size for each device. In this way, you have more control over which area of the image is displayed on different device sizes.


You can choose to Show / Hide a Section according to the device.

  1. Go to Section Setting > Advanced
  2. Under Responsive > Visibility 
  3. Set your visibility preferences, choosing from Hide on DesktopHide on Tablet, or Hide on Mobile.

Tip: While the Widgets Panel is open, Responsive Preview modes will continue to show sections you've hidden, making it appear as though they won't be hidden on the live site. However, all you need to do is click the arrow  to hide the Widgets Panel, and the responsive preview will immediately reflect the fact that your section is hidden. Watch how showing and hiding the Widgets Panel affects the Responsive Preview of a hidden section on Mobile.
