Windows 7: Open folders?

Open folders?

Hello, this has probably already answered or it's easy to do (or maybe impossible..), but I really can't find anything related.

I want to change the default open yellow folders in Windows.
Inside the music library I have various folders with a thumbnail of each artist, for each folder. And that's the folder I want to change. I don't like the yellow folders, and I wondered if there's any way to change them but keeping the jpgs as thumbnails.

PS: Sorry if I didn't explain myself right

But I don't want to change the whole theme. I just want to change "that" icon.

I know TuneUp Utilities "Styler" allows you to customize the System Icons, and the "User Folders" are considered System Icons.

Give that a shot.

If not, I know there are simply titled programs that can help such as "Icon Changer", etc..

This will get you going :

User Folders - Change Default Icon


or check this out. It's a fantastic thread on resource hacking, made by someone I know :

Windows 7 Theme & Resource Mods

mod #7 there explains in detail how to change your explorer folder icons through some easy resource hacking.

Hello PZC, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think this may be what you are after instead.

Open Folder Icon - Change

or

Folder Icon - Change Windows 7 Default Folder Icon

Hope this helps,

First option is not what I'm looking for, and I see myself incapable of making second one XD But thanks anyway.

I tried the first one before making this thread, but it only changed the folders without the jpg thumbnails.
As for the second, it has only changed the open folders in the tree explorers.

It seems I may not been able to change them T_T

PS: Maybe I explained myself wrong? Would it be better if I make a screencap of what I have and want to change?
