Change Folder Icon


Can you handle this?
28 Jan 2003
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. :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
