Folder BG Image

This is how to add a background image to any folder in Windows XP.

Make sure all hidden files are visible on your system. Open the folder for which you wish to add a background image. Right-click  within the folder and select Properties » Customize tab » Customize. There, choose any icon, click Apply and OK.

That process should have created a "desktop.ini" file. Open that file with a text editor and add these lines of code:




IconArea_Image=C:\path\folder\background.jpg To customize this according to your needs, the path in the last line is location of the image you wish to use as the background image for that folder. Refresh the folder and the new background should appear.

Note : To remove the default icon chosen during the creation of the desktop.ini and restore the default folder icon, delete these lines of code from within the desktop.ini file



IconIndex=(some number)

This will restore default BG image
