Folder Background Changer 1.0

Changes the background of folders by right clicking
Changing the background of any folder on your computer is quite an easy task, since there are so many apps out there created in this regard.

Folder Background Changer however is here to bring everything to another new level, relying just on a few-click task to successfully change the background of a directory.

After installation, it's enough to simply right-click any folder on your computer and hit the “Change Background” option, which means that yes, Folder Background Changer comes with shell integration too.

On the other hand, if you want to reset the configuration and get back to a non-background layout, Folder Background Changer offers a dedicated utility. In other words, you need to browse to the program folder and launch the “Reset” tool that automatically removes all backgrounds.

Sadly, you can't remove the background for just one folder, so you either keep them as they are or simply reset all directories.

Folder Background Changer requires just basic computer knowledge and works on all Windows versions on the market. Administrator privileges are needed on Windows 7 workstations if you want to change the background of system-protected folders.

All things considered, Folder Background Changer comes with the essential features, but further improvements are still needed. For example, we missed a configuration screen to tweak the folder background, while some rookies may feel the need for a dedicated interface or even a wizard to assist them throughout the entire process. A “Readme” file is also available in the package for basic documentation on the available features.
