Cannot find default music folder icon

I made a new folder and I'm trying to find the default music folder icon to use for it. I can't seem to. Where would it be located?

Right click on the folder icon and then Left click on Properties. Click on the Customize tab and then the button to "Change Icon". You can then select from the available icons that are shown.

Hello Erratic Fox,

In addition, after doing the above, you should have a Restore Defaults button to click on to restore it's default icon.

If this is for your "C:\Users\(user-name)\Music" folder and it doesn't have a Location tab in properties, then you'll need to restore it's default location and icon using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below instead.

Hope this helps.

I don't think he is having a problem with the music folder. He created a new folder and wants it's icon to be the same as the music folder. I tried finding the icon that's used by clicking on the change icon button on my music folder, but none of the choices are the one with the single blue note like with the music folder. I haven't been able to find where that particular icon is located.

Actually I found the file where the icon is located. C:\Windows\system32\imageres.dll
