Add A Picture To A Folder

Recommended Posts




Microsoft Windows XP usually shows icons for folders like My Music and My Pictures. If a folder contains pictures, Windows XP displays random thumbnails from within the folder. You can replace these icons with custom pictures to make browsing your files more fun, and to make it easier for children to find and open files.


Note: Your picture is visible only when you're browsing folders with the Thumbnails view. To access the Thumbnails view, click Thumbnails on the View menu.


To add a picture to a folder



In Windows Explorer (the program that appears when you open folders such as My Computer, My Documents, My Pictures, or My Music), right-click the folder you want to add a picture to, and then click Properties.



In the Properties dialog box, click the Customize tab. If there is no Customize tab, you cannot add a picture to that folder. You can add pictures to other folders, however.




On the Customize tab, click Choose Picture.



In the Browse dialog box, click the picture you want to use, and then click Open.



Click OK.


When you view the folder using Thumbnails view, Windows displays a thumbnail of the picture you selected.
