Not long time ago (around 7-8 months), I’ve posted an article about How to Set Finder Background which teach you how to set custom image as your Finder background replacing the default solid white color.
Note: Don’t see the cute icons, see the solid color background..
But, how if you want to set solid color as your Finder background?
You can follow these steps and I guarantee you will get your Finder background color changed.
- Open Finder.app
- Press Command-J to Show up View Options (or you can use right-click ▸ Show View Options)
- Look at the bottom, the Background section and enable Color radio button
Now you can click on the square sampled color. There you can find a magnifier button as the color picker at the left side of the color bar.
You can even use that to pick nice color from UsingMac.com.
