Windows 7: Change default folder icon with FileTypesMan?

Change default folder icon with FileTypesMan?

I'm using FileTypesMan x64 (by NirSoft) to change icons of file extensions, such as zip, crx, cmd, etc, and I reached the bottom where I could edit a "Folder" and "Directory" entry. When I went to change the icons on both, nothing changed. Is this something that can be done with FileTypesMan? I was hoping to change the default folder icon to the Windows 10 RTM icon.

What happened when you tried folder-name-changing in Safe Mode?
