Windows 7: Unable to change folder icon

Unable to change folder icon


I am unable to change my folder icons.

but whatever picture i choose the folder icon doesn't change.

I've tried renaming the picture to .ico but that doesn't help either. I put the picture into another new folder by itself but that doesn't help either.

I get the error message : "The file contains no icons"

any help is appreciated thank you.

you need a ico file in there to change it to, are the images you are trying png's or jpg's etc,
you can convert a png to an icon using an online converter easily, - Convert .PNG format files to .ICO or .ICO format files to .PNG : Windows Vista compatible icons
