Folder Backgrounds

Hi,

How do I manually change the background image of certain folders in Explorer? The program Windows 7 Background Changer lags my Explorer.

Hi, whs,

I don’t want to change the background color; I want to set a background image, as shown below. This is possible in XP through editing a folder’s desktop.ini, but not in 7.

Hi, A Guy,

No, I hadn’t, but I just did, and it had the same effect on my Explorer.

Thanks anyway.
