Thanks man.
But I now how to work whith desktop background.
The problem is at
USBBackground.
I used to have a background on my usb on windows XP but now in 7 that way dont work anymore.



Heres the tutorial for XP:
1.) Copy Paste the following code in the notepad and rename that notepad file to desktop.ini (Just make sure when you paste this code, the Double Quotes are in Notepad format otherwise type the Double quotes manually from your keyboard.)
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
iconarea_image=“back.jpg”
iconarea_text=”0xFFFFFF”
2.) Choose any image of your choice and rename it to back.jpg
3.) Copy Paste both these files (i.e. desktop.ini and back.jpg) into your USB device and make them hidden by selecting Properties -> Hidden Files.
That’s it. You are done.
Just REFRESH your screen and you will see your image on background.




But this way does now work on Windows 7 can anyone help me PLZ!

With XP you could actually right click a blank area of the current open folder and select 'Customize folder' and choose a desktop background for the given folder.

There is an option in Windows 7 to customize the folder views but unfortunately not to give them a nice background.

http://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...ackground.htmlHi...Sorry about missing what you were talking about.

I did a bit off "Googling" and came up with a free tool that will do the job. I tested it out on one of my USB sticks and it works. Make sure you run as Administrator...right-click on the *.exe file and select "Run as Administrator" from the menu.
Windows 7 Folder Background Changer

I also found this (link below) after I played with the "Windows 7 Folder Background Changer".
AveFolderBG For Windows7 32Bit by *LeeWhittington on deviantART

Here is a pic of my USB stick that I "updated" using "Windows 7 Folder Background Changer"... The uninstall works well as well.

Edit: I also found this, which was already on our forum...Missed this when I was searching...Nice tool Kishan Bagaria...
