umm, im not Mavis, but if I remember right, Microsft has disabled changing the run icon... but I think a program called ActivIcons can do that. I have it but i can't check because I'm not at home right now.. why dont u just download it and see... I can change the defualt folder icon as well and more... and it's FREE so I guess you should just download for that !

:cool:

here it is, from "Beatles" at neowin:

Other items in the right section have icon setting in the registry at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID. Clsid values there have an underlying "DefaultIcon" key, where you can set the path to your icon. Here's the values:
{1A9BA3A0-143A-11CF-8350-444553540000} - Favorites
{2559a1f0-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0} - Search
{2559a1f1-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0} - Help and Support
{2559a1f3-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0} - Run...
{7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} - Network Connections
{D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524153} - Administrative Tools

And some are at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID:
{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} - Control Panel
{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} - Printers and Faxes
Hope that helps, worked for me :)

double click where it says "Default" on the right, and in the window that pops up, type the path. For examle, mine looks like this for the Search icon:

D:\Downloads\BackUps and Visual\Icons\MMX MERCURY\MMX Main Icons\Search - Sherlock.ico

Hope that helps... :)

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
