Hi Jerry (thanks again for all your help by the way). I don't think there is a bigger version of that, but isn't it already the right size anyway?

The way Windows 7 handles the pinned folder icon is different than the way Vista does, when doing some of my testing I used that image and made a icon and it did not show at all on the taskbar because of its size it was only 16 x 16 pixels that's why I need a bigger image 256 x 256 pixels to make a full-size icon that will show.

Ah ok, well I think that 16x16 is the original size of that particular icon so I don't think it can be found bigger

To properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information
Then Icon Cache - Rebuild

Also the folder icon on the taskbar if it is pinned is in explorer.exe in C:\Windows I tested. I can make that to if you want.

Then I will post to skydrive and post a link here.

Let me know
Jerry

Do they look the same to you?

Bongo, I literally joined this forum to try and get a hold of that "Primary User Folder" Icon you and Happy Cat were talking about...is there anyway to get that icon from you...that would be super appreciated.
