Take a look in all of these folders & look at all the folders inside of them

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Device Stage
C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Device Metadata
C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Device Stage

Do you have a HP folder in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files?

I have a HP folder, has no icons. BUT:these two did
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Device Stage
C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Device Metadata
And I replaced the printer.png with mine and it worked!! Thank you for the help!

Is there a way to change the icons below? I think they are all in the .dll you modded for me.

.ico would be great but I may be able to convert a .png to .ico if needed

Ok, I'll just zip up both formats, 256x256, should be 2 different icons, maybe 3. I'll work on them later. Thanks!

LOL, I hope you're not too. Here's a .zip file with 3 icons and 3 .png.
BTW, I ran sfc /scannow for another problem which it fixed but reset the icons I'd changed.

Here you go be sure to Icon Cache - Rebuild after changing the .dll
Let me know if they are OK

Manually Change Device Icons?
Has anyone figured out how to manually change device icons? It seems like there's only accurate icons for Microsoft hardware or more common things like iPods. If so, has anyone started a sort of database of icons for specific models?
