Folder picture is the picture you see on a folder when it’s being viewed in the thumbnail view (tiles, medium icons, large icons and extra-large icons view). Typically, Windows will choose one of the first four listed in the folder. Or, it will just display a Windows default picture icon.
Sometimes, to recognize the folder easier, people opt for changing folder picture, which is possible not only in Windows 10, but also in other Windows version. The following are the image file types that can be set as a Windows 10 folder picture:
.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, .tif, .tiff, .bmp, .ico, .wmf, .dib, .jfif, .jpe, .fpx, or .mix.
Especially, if you take a lot of photos, it can make finding the right collection easier with a visual cue. To change the folder picture in Windows 10, do the following.
