I was wondering if there is a way to change the image of the folder icon in Windows XP Professional - like how my Favorites folder has a star....

This one specific folder I have isn't easy to spot right away.

Do you want to change the default icon for all folders, or do you want to change the icon for only a particular folder?

To change the icon for a particular folder, right click it in Explorer, and click Properties, then the Customize tab, and hit the "Change Icon" button.
To change the default icon for all folders, just open C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll in Resource Hacker and replace the folder icon.

Hope that helps. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
