Hello Acidi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could install the free program IconViewer to add the Icons tab to files (ex: imageres.dll) that contain icons in them. As you see in the screenshot below, you will be able to see what the icon is for each number in the file (ex: imageres.dll).

Thx, this helps but not too much.
As you know, in imageres.dll there is a bunch of various icons and i want to change them almost all but using IconViewer i cant find what is number for icon of default folder, or open folder or network devices or network drive off etc, you know what i mean.
So some list with explanations will be best solution.
Anybody can help me?

Welcome to Seven Forums Acidi Borici. I have yet to see where anyone has completely mapped the imageres.dll. Even the theme creators only know the most commonly changed locations, and most use a styler program to make changes. This is just a picture, and no help, but it's as close as I could find. Sorry.
