Hi All,

I've been trying for hours and I can't figure out for the world how to
change the background wallpaper on fodlers for Windows XP. I know how to do
it on Windows ME, but I can't figure out where the hell you can customize
your folders so that there's a different background other than the white
slate that's already preset for all folders.

If anyone could help me, I'd greatly appreciate it! =:)

Have you tried going to:
- View
- Customize This Folder...
Do this in an Explorer.

There is no dialog on XP to do it. Copy the desktop.ini file from ME and XP will honour it.
