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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
