What is the procedure to change the explorer's background(white portion) in Windows XP?
Create a text file named desktop.ini. in the folder where you need to change the background. You may find a hidden file in that folder too with the name desktop.ini. If present open that file and add the following code at the end
Save the file.
You can keep the background picture in that folder or any other location you want. All you have to do is to provide the correct path.
Alternatively you can use third party softwares like Windowpaper from Sodabush.
This, IMHO, is the best way to do it:
Put a background on the whole world wide web!
Thanks for that code.
But WINDOWPAPER is fantastic.
Thanks for the appreciation!
How can I put it back then? I applied it on the D drive and cannot revert it back to normal...
^^^Hmmm....Simply delete any hidden .ini files in that drive.
