Level: Recommended For Novice Users
This tweak lets you change the toolbar background image of internet explorer. Here, the background image must be light enough to show black colors. You can try it in all potential screen resolutions up to 1600*1200. For this, go to start > run menu, enter regedit and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a string value backbitmapie5 in the right panel, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify the value with the desired path of bitmap(.bmp) image which you want to show on toolbar background. However, if you want the default look of internet explorer, delete the added value. The changes take effect after a restart or logoff. When editing the registry it is highly recommended to run a quick scan for optimization, you can test your system now for free.
