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.


Most used colors code are:
