    This is a cool tweak - I use it a lot ..

    Changing the Library icon in Windows 7

    1. Start Notepad
    2. Click Start, type the following path and press ENTER:
    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries
    [​IMG]
    3. Drag the library (for which you want to change the icon) into the Notepad window.
    4. Add the following entry after the line <isLibraryPinned>
    <iconReference>Path-to-Icon</iconReference>
    For example, to assign the 84th icon (index starts from 0) from Shell32.dll, type the following line:
    <iconReference>SHELL32.DLL,84</iconReference>
    [​IMG]
    Note: The <iconReference> line may already exist for the default Libraries. For custom Libraries, you need to add it manually.
    5. Save the file and close Notepad. Press F5 to refresh the Libraries window to see if the Library icon has changed.
