Tips & Tricks|Customize USB Drive Icons

[As you can see I have named my 320Gb WD Passport as TK-320 and put a stormtrooper icon on it, my 4Gb Pirate Nero drive is named NERO ]
If you have a lot of USB sticks or HDD drives (ATM: I have 17 and 2 respectively) it may become confusing which is which. Sure naming them would help but having a custom icon is way better :P
It’s pretty simple and straight forward.
Create a Text Document
Copy and paste this code (3 lines total):
Modify the code to fit your requirements
Rename as autorun.inf
Copy autorun.inf and your icon file to the root (no folders) of your drive.
The next time you plug-in your device you should see your custom icon & drive name.

stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
