i can't figure out how to change the icons for My Music, My Pictures, and My Videos...

no right click, properties, customize option... and no option in customize desktop thing either...

hmmm... there's got to be a way to do it without that icon workshop thing...


edit: and what about the control panel, and network connections, and printers...

For the My .... folders just edit the hidden desktop.ini file inside the folders.
Replace the lines

IconFile=%SystemRoot%\System32\mydocs.dll
IconIndex=-101

with

IconFile="C:\Any folder\Any.ico"
IconIndex=-0

one last thing... what about the ugly yellow generic folder icon...

is there anyway i can change that without doing it to each and every folder individually???

i went through the registry and checked every "defaulticon" entry and found some that referenced "folder" or "folders" but they didn't seem to make a difference what they were set to...
