Okay, to start with, you may want to download the files I have used. Click here to download them.

Now, lets start with it...Follow these steps to get the best of it...

1. Open Notepad and Paste the following code in there.


You can replace "icon.ico" by your filename for the icon. Also, you can replace "background.jpg" by your file name. But note that the file format should be ico and jpg respectively.

2. Go to file menu and choose save as . Choose the 'Save As Type' as 'All Files'. Name the file as Desktop.ini and save it in the folder whose apperence you want to change.

3. Now copy and paste the background and icon file in the same folder as the one with the 'desktop.ini' file.
