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
