    How can I change the folder background in Windows 10?


    I have been doing some research and can not find the answer anywhere. I have found ways for windows 7 and 8.1 but they are not supported on windows 10, nor do they work. If anyone out there knows how I can do this, please do speak up. I am Kind of a neat freak on my computer and am planning on using this to organize. Thanks in advance

    You should be able to right click on the desktop and select properties and you'll see this:

    You can select browse and choose the folder you want to use that has the desired images.

    I don't think you understand. I don't want to change the desktop, I want to change the folder background. What is white, I want to make a picture. This was possible in older os versions but I can not find it anymore

    @ jeplonski:
    I don't think you'll be able to pull it off without doing a lot of patching to the system;
    and that is getting harder and harder to do in Windows 10, and not really advisable either!
