In order to add background picture to the Internet Explorer toolbar without software help.
In the case, you prefer to use a freeware, you may use Skin IE
Warning, this action that I purpose you is a change of the key register. A bad manipulation on this register can cause an important failure of your system .
-first, opens REGEDIT (execute regedit.exe).
-Then fallow HKEY_CURRENT_USER / SOFTWARE / Microsoft /Internet Explorer/ toolbar
-In the file toolbar, on right window created in right clicking and choosing "new" a new string value
-name it "BackBitmap", the case is important.
-modify the key value by adding the path towards the BMP picture that you wan.
-close regedit and open an Internet Explorer window to see the result.
