Windows 7: Changing the icons in the start menu...

Changing the icons in the start menu...

Hi, is there a way for me to change the icons for My Documents and My Music and My Pictures as well as your personal folder image in the start menu? I am specifically talking about when you hover over any of the options an image appears at the top of the start menu and I know that there is a way to change what this image is, but I cannot remember it off of the top of my head. Please help!

Thank you

Hello Ryan,

You could use the tutorial below to change the icons of your user folders to what you like, but it will change them in all locations and not just in the Start Menu.
