Default Backgrounds in folders

I was wondering if there was a way to put background pictures and stuff in folders? Im aware that it is possible in the older versions of Windows (2000) But I have no idea how to do it, if you can, in XP
THANKS! and when I get home, Im going to try to do all those things to speed up my computer!
thanks

do you mean when you have a folder opened, instead of it's typical white background instead have a wallpaper displayed in the background? I don't know if you can do that with XP, im thinking no.

As everyone else said, I have no idea what you're talking about. Could you post a picture? Anyway, if you want to speed up your PC, I'd suggest you take a look at this thread:

He means instead of having the white background in folders, is there a way of having an image as a background. I know it was possible in Windows 98 but I don't think you can in XP. Maybe Microsoft forgot about it or wanted their OS to look clean and tidy.

EDIT: Found this, although you have to buy it, it gives you a free trial:

There's loads you can do, change folder background, log-on screens, Internet Explorer skins

I don't think he meant it that way. I think he meant other ways of speeding up his computer from another thread he read.
