Hello Danny,

The default icon for "Devices and Printers" is at the registry location below, but it will change the icon for it in all locations and not just in the Start Menu.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{A8A91A66-3A7D-4424-8D24-04E180695C7A}\DefaultIcon

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're most welcome Danny.

Not that I know of, but it would be hard to do with that many registry locations and different locations for the same icon.
