Windows 7: Icons of windows explorer must show all the same

Icons of windows explorer must show all the same

I have in the taskbar properties "Use small icons", "Group when taskbar is full", and this value changed with regedit:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]
    "MinWidth"="40"
I want to look like all the icons from Explorer the same, no matter in what folder is at the moment, look like they are all left as the yellow icon entirely. How can I do that?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you want, do you want the yellow folder icon to show for all open folders?

Some of the icons you have opened now look like library icons as the one on the far left looks like Explorer icon.

They are library icons and no once. I going with explorer in "Network" or in "C:\" , the Icons are different. I want always the same icon, i use the computer from 10 feet.From 10 feets i can look good. I want only one mini icon of windows explorer
