    hey guys, i can't find where the default icon folder is in xp. i used Icon Packager and installed a Mac type oackage but it didn't change the help, fin, and run icons on start menu like it showed it would. I can't figure this out and i would really app. some help if at all possible.

    P.S.- found a pretty cool sight for various skins-

    you don't.

    Right-click on the icon you want to change, then go to customize, then to Change Icon, and bring the path to C:\WINDOWS\System32\Shell32.dll.

    To change the My Computer and Recycle Bin icons, right-click on desktop, properties to get to Display settings, Desktop -> Customize Desktop -> Change Icon.

    the Recycle Bin is in shell32.dll and the my computer icon is in C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe
