Windows 7: Change individual folder icons

Change individual folder icons

Have done a search and could not see a definite answer to this.

I would like to change a couple of individual folder icons in W7. However, I do not want it to effect and be the default icon for the whole system , just an individual icon for one folder alone. The others can just stay as they are now with the standard W7 icon.

Is there any way to do that without causing problems with the default icon used by all other folders.

Any advice appreciated :-)

Open file properties; ( Right Click on the file ), click on "Customize", and then "Change Icon". Choose the icon you want to use.

My pleasure. ( Sometimes, I can do "Difficult" as well! I think that is somewhere between the fifth and seventh Scotch.Or it may be between the ninth and the eleventh, at least I am fairly sure that it is an odd nunber ) Number.
