Customize a folder on your Mac with a fancy background image.

If there’s a folder on your Mac which you use regularly, then adding a background image can really make it stand out from the others. A background image can also be used to creatively separate different groups of files or to point out a specific file. Here’s how it works:

  1. Click View in the menu at the top of the screen.
  2. Choose Show View Options.
  3. In the pop-up window, look for the Background option. Click the Picture radio button, then drag an image onto the Drag Image Here field.
  4. You might need to adjust the image size, or choose something bright to have a suitable and attractive background image.
  5. Please note that background images only work when you’re using the ‘Grid’ or ‘Icon’ views.
