Here's my pet peeve:
Yep those icky plain folders. I want to know what's in them!!
I know, I know, I could click on them. But if I'm looking for something in particular, I was to quickly glance through all of my clip art! So I got to thinking today... 'Surely there is a way to fix this!'
And I found it!
Step #1- Right click on one of the blank folders (yes you can do it on the others too if you want to change the image!)
Step #2- Click on the 'properties' option at the bottom.
Step #3- Click the 'Customize' tab up at the top. Then you can click 'Choose Picture'.
Step #4- Choose the picture that you want from the options.
Step #5- Click 'OK' and enjoy your new and improved look!
How easy is that? I literally did about 20 folders in 5 minutes. Not bad at all and now my view is so much better and it's easier to find what I'm looking for!!
For Mac users- Sorry no images! My husband solved this one for me but he hast he Mac! Thank you to my awesome friend Kate at EduKate & Inspire for these wonderful pictures from her Mac!!!
