what is the function of this code? and how can I manage or generate this types of codes?
if I delete this code in desktop.ini file so my selected picture appear on my folder background or not? If I create a Desktop.ini file in my computer and share it with others so will it work on others computers or not?

Desktop.ini doesn't manage pictures or backgrounds. From what I've read (which MAY be wrong), desktop.ini manages layouts, such as sorting order, whether your viewing your icons as tiles, thumbnails, etc.

The file Thumbs.db manages and stores thumbnails of images which can be cleared up with CCleaner or windows cleaner.

The code looks like the hexadecimal alphabet. Putting this code on another computer, i assume, would ONLY work if you have the same folder location and items in that folder. I hope I'm clear with this.

Good luck.

You need to edit the desktop.ini(unhide it) of the folder you like to change

Happy to help.

OK just to confirm, there is a picture on your C drive and you want to make it the wallpaper of a folder on the D Drive? Where did you get that code from? OK, let me know if my english is too complicated. Hope i can help.
