    How do I change the default Folder icon for all folders in WinXP Pro. I tried going into the "File Types" and changing the default icon for "File Folder". I then rebooted, but nothing happens.
    I preferably don't want to use any external software to do this ...

    Anybody have any ideas?
    Thanx guys.

    XP-erience is the koolest!!

    If you're comfortable hacking your shell32.dll, you can replace the icon that way. I wrote a tutorial about it here.

    The screenshot in my sig shows my default folder icon - in the top right corner there are three or four folders... Easy to do once you get the hang of it. :)
