There are many ways to add a touch of personality and style to your computer, ranging from changing the wallpaper on a regular basis to replacing the default Windows icons or theme. Another way is to preview custom images as folder backgrounds, and this can be achieved using Windows 7 Folder Background Changer.
This application comes with a very intuitive graphical interface that enables even beginners to customize the appearance of their Windows Explorer by assigning a different picture to each folder. One simply needs to specify the folder they want to personalize then browse to the image they like best.
In order to make sure the output is in accordance with their needs, the application displays the folder in question and its new background, allowing users to experiment with several images until settling for the final one.
Another feature provided by Windows 7 Folder Background Changer is that it permits users to modify the text color or to display shadow under the text so as to generate a harmonious look for each directory. One can also enable a dedicated checkbox to apply the modifications not only to a folder, but also to its sub-folders.
If users no longer want an image to be displayed as their directory background, they can use the same tool to remove it, while preserving the new text color and shadow to give the chosen folder a subtle, different look.
As suggested by its name, this software solution can only be run on Windows 7 platforms, be they 32bit or 64bit, so older operating systems are not supported.
In a nutshell, Windows 7 Folder Background Changer is a user-friendly app that can customize one's PC with only a few mouse clicks, while still providing users the option of restoring the original configuration when needed.
