Windows 7: USB flash drive background

USB flash drive background

Is there a way to set the desktop background for a USB drive to an image, and have it portable so all PCs you plug it up to show the image? I can change the background using the desktop.ini, but it only works on my machine.. I want it to work wherever I plug it up..

Sounds like you mean for the drive icon instead. If so, then you could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below with a autorun.ini file to do so. :)

Hope this helps,
