Change Background of the folder

As Windows XP Home/Pro was released, many have realized that Microsoft had removed our ability to change wallpaper of our folders! Shortly after we realized the trouble on our machines, we got to work on a solution. We’ve found that Microsoft™ did not remove the ability to change the background and text color but instead hide the interface.

Now, it is somewhat simple for anyone to add wallpaper to a Windows XP folder.


1) Open notepad

2) Type in the text below
[{BE0981 40-A513-11D0-A3 A4-00C04FD706EC}]
IconArea_Image ="C:\your picture location.jpg"
IconArea_Text= 0x00FFFFFF

3) Save file as desktop.ini
Save as type : All Files

4) Copy the desktop.ini file you just created, and
paste into the folder you want the background to
be change

5) Go to START --> RUN..

6) Type Attrib s "C:\Location of your folder"
Click OK

7) Open your folder and the picture should be set by now.

This wasn't working for me, It turns out that there is a space in the first part, It should be [{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
