Download Link



Windows 7 Folder Background Changer is a free tiny portable tool that allows you to change any folder's background & text color in Windows 7/Vista.

How to use:


  1. Run the tool as administrator. If you have run this tool for the first time then it will restart Explorer.

  2. Click on Browse and browse for the folder of which you want to change the background/text color.

  3. Click on Change Background Image and browse for the image that you want to set as the background of the folder.

  4. Click on the Black color rectangle and select the color that you want to set as the text color of the folder.

  5. If you want to display a shadow under the text of all the items in the folder, select Show Shadow Under Text. This option will only work with icons view.

  6. If you want the style of this folder to be applied to all the sub-folders, select Apply To Sub Folders.

well I installed it ran it without administrator obviously didn't worked but then ran it with administrator it worked, but it destroyed the whole view of it.  narrowing the space between folders and other stuff i tried to uninstall it by  control panel but couldn't find it then deleted all setup files because I didn't knew where it was installed. but then came across that file w7fbc in Local disk c>windows. tried to del it but it says that it is running in another program. the I thought why don't I install it again and see what happens but then I saw uninstall button and I pressed it and background is removed but computer is still slow, folders are still narrowed and that w7fbc is still at it's place. what I have to do now?

0 stars - Used and gave my folders a bug??? I have a new computer and I was using a different version of the same tool on my old one, but I found this and used it on a new, virus free Windows 7 computer, only for it to add a bug to all my folders, even the ones that didnt have backgrounds set. This doesnt let me click on anything in the folder or in subfolders. Plus, the uninstall button doesn't work.

Hi there,
first i want to thanks, also on behalf of my eyes, for this nifty little program. I have run out of fun "Windows 7 Folder Background Changer" under Windows 8.1. In some folders i have still the desktop.ini with the information for AVEFolder.
Now i have found out something strange. If I use the mouse scroll or scrollbar in the explorer window/folder, my old folder background appears. Thats great. But only as long as i have open that folder. This gives me some hope that it will still be possible to change the background on Windows 8.1 file explorer. These white windows blinds me too much and I get wrinkles on the face, because I always have to squint.

First run, I use W7 Folder Background normally
Then, i using W7 Task Pane Changer and restart computer
Once restarted, I do not see the folder background anymore
I think the reason is W7 Changer Task Pane, so I had to restore it
But I still can not apply folder background
Hope you help me fix this :(

It works but after applying it, the other folders are showing details (Name, Modify, Type, Size) instead of the display mode that was used before, i mean Large Icons, Medium Icons or List.
