Personalise Your Flash Drive With A Custom Background

Windows: Flash drives come in many different shapes, but once you connect them to your PC and start browsing with Windows Explorer, what you see is exactly the same. If you’re on a PC, Windows lets you create a custom background with a desktop.ini file.

Whether you’re just trying to personalise your stuff or get it back if it gets lost, you’ll need to save the image to the root of the drive. Name it background.jpg, and then create a file named desktop.ini in Notepad (make sure to remove the .txt extension). Put it in the root of the drive with this code in the file:

[ExtShellFolderViews] {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}={BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} [{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}] Attributes=1 IconArea_Image=background.jpg

If you want to change the background image, just swap the background.jpg file for a new image with the same name.
