Hi RBCC,

Are you trying to change the background image/color of the main Explorer window pane? (white area?)

If so, you may be out of luck:

Custom Explorer Background Image
how set a background image of Windows 7 folders

Please let me know if this is not what you're referring to.

Cheers,

After you click "all Programs" on the startmenu, there is a white screen that shows up with all your programs on the system. I am trying to change this.

After you click "control panel" then control panel shows up with a white background screen with whats in control panel and icons, I am trying to change this background.

Thank you, John

Yeah, that's what i meant by posting those links. Unfortunately it looks like nobody has yet figured out a registry edit that allows you to change the background of Explorer windows (such as Control Panel) or the 'All Programs' list in Start menu. If I ever hear of one, I will try to remember to post back here and let you know.

Cheers,
