Windows 7: Icon Customize for the Users folder

26 Jul 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional

Hi Bulldog7,

Tried the different icon, get the different one in the "Documents and Settings" folder, "Users" folder stays the same.

Also tried your file attachment, didn't work.

Thanks so much for your time!

Going to leave it as is

I'm not going to worry about this anymore, so I'm marking this as solved.

Thanks for both your help.

Actually, the attributes fix was right, but only part of the solution. The desktop.ini file needs to have the H and S attributes (the A attribute is not needed, but won't hurt), but also, the folder in which the desktop.ini file is needs to have the R attribute (not the read only attribute that can be set through Windows Explorer, but the one you set in a Command Prompt window using the attrib +r command on the folder.
