Right click the folder, Properties/customize/Change icon/browse to the folder where your icon is. Then click Apply/OK that should do it.

Don't change the location/path, they have to stay in the location from where you browse too. It's the only way to do it.

You can do it with a desktop.ini file, but I don't think it will keep the icon if you move the location. It must remain in the folder with the .ini file.
