Putting a picture background for your flashdrive is a cool customization usb trick! You may have your own picture or any favorite picture to be placed as the background of your USB flashdrive. This is done by putting or copying your picture in root directory of your USB Flashdrive or thumbdrive. Also to be copied is a file called "desktop.ini" file. Follow the steps below to have your USB Flashdrive or thumbdrive a cool picture background!


Adding a Picture in your Flashdrive

1. Copy a picture into your flashdrive. Remember the filename and the file extension of your picture as picture may come as "my pic.jpg" or "my pic.gif"

2. The best picture background for your USB Flashdrive is a picture having a solid plain fill like white, black, dark blue, or any other safer colors. Having high contrast picture as a background can only cause a "trashy" look and will make you find or select your files difficult.


Adding the Desktop.ini file to your Flashdrive

1. Open Notepad by pressing Win+R then type inside the box "notepad" (without the quotation)

2. As the Notepad window appears, copy the following codes below

--- start copy

iconarea_image=my pic.jpg
iconarea_text=0x75F85B

--- stop copy
