How do I change the E2B background wallpaper?

  1. Place your 800×600 32-bit colour .jpg or .bmp file in the \_ISO folder of the E2B USB drive.
  2. Launch the \_ISO\E2B_Editor.exe program. This allows you to edit\create a \_ISO\MyE2B.cfg file which can specify the resolution and default wallpaper file.

The menu display mode is determined by the setting in the \_ISO\MyE2B.cfg file. Use 800×600 32-bit colour (or 1024×768 but may not work on older systems). Do not exceed 1024×768 or else grub4dos may crash!

.jpg files must be in standard non-progressive 100% format (use Microsoft Paint to re-save it).

agFM and Ventoy use different menu systems. agFM can use a simple background picture on a text-based menu. agFM and Ventoy can also use a grub2 theme.

Change the other E2B menu backgrounds

To change the background loaded by any E2B menu, you can place a .bmp or .jpg file in the \_ISO folder which has the same folder name as the menu folder.

For instance, if you copy over an 800×600 32-bit colour .jpg file \_ISO\MAINMENU.jpg, it will be loaded when the MAINMENU folder is displayed.

If you have a \_ISO\LINUX.bmp 800×600 32-bit colour file, it will be loaded when the LINUX folder is displayed.

If you have a \_ISO\UTILITIES_MEMTEST.jpg file, it will be loaded when the MEMORY TEST menu is loaded.

Tip: .jpg files will be smaller and quicker to load.
