Add wallpaper to a folder in XP

To add wallpaper to a folder in XP, follow the steps

1. Open the folder.

2. Choose Tools, Folder Options, and click the View tab.

3. Under ‘Advanced settings’, select Show hidden files and folders (you may need to double-click Hidden files and folders first).

4. Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) and click Yes when you see the warning.Click OK

5. Double-click the file named desktop.ini to open it in your text editor (you may not see the .ini extension). If you can’t find a desktop.ini file, launch Notepad or your preferred text editor.

6. In your text editor, type   BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC (this line contains no capital letter Os, only zeroes) on the first line, and press Enter.

7. Type IconArea_Image= and the path to your .bmp, .gif, or .jpg image file–for example, ‘IconArea_Image=C:\My Documents\My Pictures\Picture Name.jpg’ or just ‘Picture Name.jpg’ for removable drives and pen drives. Then press Enter.

8. Open cmd and type attrib +s “folder address” .   ( Example :   ‘attrib +s C:\Documents and Settings\…\My Documents\My Folder’ ).

Refresh the page to see the cutomized folder.

If you want to change the color of the Icon text do the following: To leave the icon text black, do nothing.

For white, type IconArea_Text=0x00FFFFFF (make sure that the x is lowercase) and press Enter. For red text, replace the code that follows the equal sign with 0x000000FF; to make the text yellow, type 0x0000FFFF; for blue text, use 0x00FF0000; and to show gray text, enter 0x00808080.  If you’re editing the folder’s existing desktop.ini file, save the file and close your text editor. If you created the file from scratch, save it with the name “desktop.ini” in the folder that will house the background picture; use quotation marks to keep Notepad from adding its default .txt extension.
