Custom Folder Picture

This tip is for our fans of folder customization. Take a look at one of the folder icons on your desktop and you’ll notice that there’s a picture sticking out of it. Like this:


It would appear that this is just a random picture, chosen by Windows, but we all know better – we know that there’s gotta be a way to change it.

And there is!

Just Right-Click the folder and choose Properties. From here, make sure the Customize tab is selected and under Folder Pictures, choose Choose File… (Might be “Choose Picture” under Windows XP)


Now simply browse to a location on your hard drive that’s got a picture you want to use, select it and choose Open. Click OK.

Now your folder has its own custom picture!
