Windows 7: Change individual folder icons

09 Apr 2011   #1

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 Windows 7. 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 Windows 7 icon.

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

Any advice appreciated :-)

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

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.
