Default Folder Icon

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. :)

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
