When you open drive or folder, You see white background. Even though you change your theme, your window explorer background remains the same, i.e. white background which is very common. Now you can add or change background of any folders or Drives.
This trick will let you add image as background to the folders or drive’s background which will replace your old white background.
Suppose we have two drive one for movies and other for songs. I can personalize my two drives by setting some background image according to the drive data.
So when you open movie drive, You will see movie’s background images and when you open songs drive, You will see album images as background image. As shown in the below image, it shows that I have changed the background of My Document to some wallpaper.
In the above image, I have changed My Document Background Showing some Image, which is looking professional and look.
Follow below Steps to Set or Add Image To Background of Window Explorer
Step 1: Go to Start –> All Program –> Accessories –> Open Notepad.
Step 2: Paste the Below Code in notepad.
Note: Copy the code as Shown Above. The three line of code should be on separate line as shown above.
Step 3: Now, Save it as "Desktop.ini" without quotes. Save this file where you need the image background. Above Example shows that I have saved in My document.
Step 4: Now, you need an image for background. Create a folder named Images and Copy images in that folder. Now give the directory of the image location in the second line of coding. Suppose your image name is "1.jpg" which is inside the images folder, Then the directory for this will be Images\1.jpg. I have named my images with series of a number, which make easier to change background images later in the code.
Now, we have two files. First file is the code saved as Desktop.ini and other one is a Folder named Images, Contains the images used for background.
Once you make the required changes in the code, save the file and refresh the folder, you will see the wallpaper as background for the folder. In case, you don’t see wallpaper set as background then make sure you specified the Correct Directories in Second Line of the code. I.e., IconArea_Image=IMAGES\2.Jpg .
Third line of code specifies icon text color. If the background is black, Then change the text color to white.
You can use this trick to any folder or drive, Even to Portable drives, Flash drives, Pen drives. Just Copy the image folder and desktop.ini, where you need the image background.
