How to Pimp Up Your USB

Screenshot of our USB desktop

Recently one of our computer class students showed us how he had made a custom icon and background for his plug in USB stick drive.

It looked great, and so we thought we would do this ourselves, and make a tutorial on how it is done.

The folowing works for Windows XP, but on VISTA and Windows 7, the custom background does not work, because Windows has some kind of security that does not allow the desktop.ini file to run.

The following PDF gives step by step instuctions on how to make your own custom icon and desktop background.

If you would like to have your own full size copy of this PDF, then simply click the save disk icon button on the PDF viewer, and you should be able to save it to your own hard disk.

Alternatively, you can view or save the full size PDF by clicking the link below:
