Let's look at the situation in which you constantly work at a computer and you need to modernize your "seven" day after day so that it is individual. The individuality of a particular system is not only in its appearance or functionality, but also disappears under various small additions that look like individual particles, which in fact are unique, but at the same time remain functional in the same way , as they were before their visual change. Thus, the first thing that comes to mind is to change Windows 7 folders and make them completely different, sometimes even unusual. Of course, this idea seems to some of you to be something stupid, but if for example, a PC user has a lot of folders and he wants to divide them according to the color scheme, by months, or else somehow highlight an important folder where documents are stored, which can not be accidentally deleted, then you can not do without this article, because with its help, you can use a unique software, which is ideal in almost every sense of the word.
How to change Windows 7 folders?
In fact, this process is not very labor-intensive, as it might seem from the beginning, and all that we suggest to all comers to replace the "standard" appearance of folders with something else is to use a third-party utility that does not require installation from you in the OS environment and can be deployed to configure the folders in a matter of seconds. It should also be noted that this is a utility Folder Background Charger, which is distributed free of charge and does not require any money for its use.
At the initial stage, you should download the Folder Background Charger from the Internet, after which you will have to unzip the archive with the program and only after that, you will need to start the software, but with Administrator rights. Run on behalf of the Administrator is done by hovering over the icon of the utility and right-clicking on it, after which a small drop-down menu appears, where the item "Run as Administrator" is displayed.
After the utility Folder Background Charger is launched, you will notice that the "Desktop" of your PC "frozen", or on it all the Labels disappeared for a few seconds. Do not be surprised at this metamorphosis, as they show that the utility started and restarted the Explorer itself, which allowed not to restart Windows 7 completely.
In the utility window, you should click on the "Browse" button, which will open additional options for selecting the folder that will be visually changed. It remains only to click on the "Change Background Image" button so that you can select a graphic file that will be used as a background image.
If you use the "Remove Background Image" button, this action will mark all the changes made to the visual appearance of the folder. Thus, this button is a kind of "reset" to the original state of the folder.
When you try to change Windows 7 folders, there are situations when you need to use the "Text Color" button, which is responsible for the color gamut of the text in the folder name. Thus, if the text of the folder name is black and the background of the folder you chose is dark or black, in that case, it's worth replacing it with a lighter one, especially since it's done in a couple of clicks.
In order to "save" the changes made to the system, you just close the "Explorer" window and see how the folder visually changed.
P.S. In our opinion, the utility Folder Background Charger is quite practical in terms of using the tool, but it has one drawback ... This drawback is expressed in the fact that the utility does not have the ability to create folders. Therefore, you can not create a folder and make changes to its appearance, since the folder should already be created and only then it will be possible to work with it through the utility.
