Hi, Neutron16!

Is there a way to reverse what the script does?

I have created another version of my script. I does the same thing, except it copies desktop.ini file from predefined folder.

You need to create this folder first
C:\custom_icon\
and apply your icon to it. Then put the script in your master folder (My pictures or whatever) and start it.
DO NOT PUT ANYTHING IN C:\custom_icon\
this is a temporary folder, just to copy icon from. You can delete it once script will finish it's job.

Basically, in this case script will copy icon not from master folder but from C:\custom_icon\
Hi Neutron16, This script works for folders fine. But do you have anything to mass change Folder Shortcut icons? This doesn't work for Folder Shortcuts ... or any other shortcut icons.

Hi vikdaw,
Indeed, my script does not work for shortcuts, but for folders only.
Folders store their information about icons in separate files. My script grabs that file from a model folder and simply copies in to other designated folders.

Shortcuts are files on their own and their content needs to be edited individually to change their icons. My script can not edit other files.
Sorry, I don't know how to achieve what you want on a mass scale.

THANKS TO ALL FANS OF THIS SCRIPT!!! Especially, to those who registered on this website just to say thank you!

Neutron16,
Thanks of the resource, I'm not to well verse with computers and was hoping you can make a video on how to do it.

After years (and many, many hours) of manually assigning icons to my folders I finally discovered this thread. To put it into perspective, I have about 25,000 folders I use to meticulously sort all my files. I've probably manually assigned icons to half of them (and used templates for the other half). Thank you so much for taking the time to write and post the script!

Hi Cameron,
I am afraid, video is not going to happen. However, I can try to walk you through steps as my post suggests.
Bulk Change All Folder Icons in Single Folder or Folder Type

First you need to create a folder custom_icon on the disk C. To do that, open MyComputer, navigate to disk C. Right click on the empty space inside Explorer window - Create - New - Folder. Than rename that New Folder to custom_icon, hit Enter. Right click on that folder - Properties - Customize tab - Change icon. Select the icon you like.

Download the script from the post, put it in the target folder where you want to make changes.
Right click the script - Run as Administrator.
Viola!
