STE Color Background

Recommended Posts

Hello all. How do I go about changing the color of the desktop? I have a stock STE and using an ASCI image...I've read about editing the INF file but it doesn't seem to effect the color. Is there perchance a helper app for this?


Sorry...This is probably pretty remedial but I'm new to the ST. Thank you!

You can change the colours if you install the Control panel accessory or Xcontrol accessory


Just copy the CONTROL.ACC/or XCONTROL.ACC to the root of your boot disk and reboot

change the colours to suit and save preferences


I use a light blue for mine

Thank you. It turns out I'm an idiot...I had that program and was simply using it incorrectly. (slaps forehead)


Edit: Would you indulge me another question? How do I select different texture patterns in the background along with the color?
