How to Apply Background Images to Folders : Trick

You can apply background picture for your folder and also change the way text is shown, in order to match your background. This can be done using a number of free tools. The most user friendly you can find is called Windows 7 Folder Background Changer. Long name isn’t it..??

This tool was released by the WindowsClub and can be downloaded from Softpedia. Once you have it on your computer, unzip it and run its main executable as admin (Right click -> Run as administrator).

Note: If you don’t run it as administrator, chances are high that the application will crash.

Once the application is open, select the folder for which you want to add a background image. Then, click on Change Background Image and select the image you want to use.

One very important tip: do not forget to change the text color. Simply click on the box near Text Color and customize it so that it has enough contrast vs. your background image. Otherwise you won’t be able to see the text very well.

As an added feature, you can select if you want to Show Shadows Under Text and choose to Apply To Sub Folders the background image you have just chosen.

Once all configuration is done, close the application and the settings are applied.
