Icon background in Windows XP 2


It looks like a custom view for a music folder. Try right-clicking on the folder in Windows Explorer, then select the 3rd tab, "Customize", and change your folder type.

wd passport file customizing


If you open the Computer directory and identify the drive letter for the WD Passport drive, right-click on the drive folder and select properties. The properties tool for the drive will open showing several tabs. Select the Customize tab and you will see a heading for "use this folder type as a template" with a drop down menu. Here you can select different categories for the folder and apply it to subdirectories also by checking the box below. This should give the folders more of a vista look! If you want to personalize further and add your own images to the folder icons you can also do this here. If you don't select the apply to subdirectories option you can manually apply different styles to different folders in subdirectories. If you don't like the way things have turned out you can also restore the default settings.

Hope this answers your question.

Have fun
