Hello RBCC,

What are you referring to? Do you mean changing the background in the Start Menu -> All Programs area?

Please let us know.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

That is a virtual folder;

Start Menu All Programs - Add or Delete Shortcuts


There is no simple way to add a background photo.

The easiest way is to use the old "Folder.jpg" trick. Copy a .jpg pic to the folder, rename it to "Folder.jpg" (it keeps it at the forefront) and you have the folder pic:

Name:  ScreenShot00366.jpg
Views: 163
Size:  9.4 KB

Name:  ScreenShot00367.jpg
Views: 9
Size:  39.1 KB

I don't know for sure if this is what the OP is seeking to do but I just thought I'd toss it out, in case.

My guess is you would have to use a third party skinning program to do that. You might check in the customization forum that resides right here in sevenforums for more information.

Add a picture to the start menu? What is the goal you are trying to accomplish here, e.g. how does this help you?
