How to insert any picture in background of any Drive including USB/ Flash Drive









Hello Guys,


Here is the step by step procedure to Apply an image as background of any drive say C:, D:........




Step 1: Open notepad and write these lines:


1. Type in the exact line below : 
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]


2.Specify the picture : Now, in the next line we will specify the picture that we want to use as the background.... For that replace the path after '=' in following line with the path of the image you want to apply....


iconarea_image=C:\Documents and Settings\ach042\Desktop\DAccord\changepaper\background.bmp


3. Specify the icon label color: In the next line we will specify the icon label color or you can say the color of icon label's  text.


iconarea_text=0x00FFFFFF


Most used colors code are:

  • Black - 0x00000000
  • White - 0x00FFFFFF
  • Green - 0x0000FF00
  • Blue - 0x00FF0000
  • Purple - 0x00C000C0
  • Red - 0x000000FF
  • Yellow - 0x0000FFFF
  • Indigo - 0x00FFFF00

so the final code will like like this



Step 2: Now save the notepad file with name desktop.ini in any drive. 



Now just reopen the drive :)
