Changing Yours Windows Icons

Changing Your Windows’ Icons

You can change the Icons Windows uses for folders, the Start Menu, opened and closed folder in the Explorer, and many more.

1. Open RegEdit 2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIcons 3. Add a string value for each Icon you wish to change.

Example: “3” =”C:\Windows\Icons\MyIcon.ico,0″

This will change the closed folders in the Explorer to “MyIcon.ico”.

Here is a complete list for each value 1 through 40.
