Change the Background of the Photos Windows 8

Here's how to change the background of the Photos in Windows 8. Open "Windows Explorer" and select the tab "View", put a check mark on "Hidden items" to enable viewing of hidden files.
Now, go to the folder C: \ Program Files, right-click on the folder "WindowsApps" and select "Properties" from the context menu. Taken to the "Security" tab and click "Advanced" click on "Change" button on the "Owner". Here, enter the email address you use to log on to Windows 8 in the "Enter the object name to select" and click "OK" to acquire the rights necessary to modify the contents of the "WindowsApps". Once this is done, go to the folder C: \ Program Files \ WindowsApps \ microsoft.WindowsPhoto_xxxxxxxx \ en_us \ PhotoViewer \ Images.
Replace the image "defaultBackground.jpg" with a custom image.
The next time you restart the app, the background on the screen will no longer be the default but the image that you copied to the folder above.
