Hello NoN,

Sure you can change the library icon if you like. You can download the icon here for it. Just click on the icon image to get the download window for it.

Oops!!!

All icons were just a post up in front of me... I though they were the icons like the default users accounts!

It's a little tricky "xml" way...it tooks me time realizing it from the folder i wanted!! i've Got some access denied issue when drag & drop into the notepad, i'll find my way!

Thanks a lot!

Hi there Brink,
Well, looks the method to change the Icon library, in the way i wanted to does not work at all!!
I've been to:
C:\Users\Votre_Compte\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries, to edit with the notepad the icon.xml,
but i don't have the line <iconReference>iconres.dll, -1005</iconReference> (for exemple), to change it to <iconReference>D:\Icones\Win_music.ico</iconReference> (again for exemple)

It is because the icon i want to change are from the "User Public" and not the "User".
It does work fine when you use it on the "User" Icons, but not on "User Public" unless adding lines to the notepad edited.
I'm not enough skilled to add lines even if i suspect a little how to do it!
I give it a try maybe soon and let you know if it had work.

Hello NoN,

You can use the examples in the tutorial to see where to add it. If you are unsure, then upload the TXT file for the library in a ZIP along with the full path of the icon. I'll be happy to add it in for you.

Sorry i've been lazy lately for that thread...

I found an easiest way you brought at:
New Library Icon - Change Default Icon

This work well for the recorded Tv Icon! But this apply to all new created libraries...

So, i still have to change the other way of the "User Public Libraries"

I've pack in a Zip folder what we were discussing about "User Public Libraries" for you modifying the lines.

I just don't know where to put those added lines without fearing messing all up!

I know: <iconReference>iconres.dll, -1005</iconReference> to <iconReference>D:\Icones\Win_music.ico</iconReference>

But the path inside .xml are too different from the method you are usualy explain in this thread.

It would be much appreciated. Kind Regards.

Thank you for all your efforts and this much helpfull 7 forum!

NoN,

Could you upload the complete TXT file from step 4 here of each library that you want to change the icon for, then list the icon's full path for each library. I'll add it to the TXT file and upload it back to so that you can finish the steps in that tutorial.

P.S.
You cannot have the icon in the SysWoW64 folder. You might place it a user folder instead.

NoN,

Ok mate. Here are the modofied text files with the icon path included in them for the libraries below.

Some other items to check:
  • Right click on the icon file and click on Properties, General tab, and see if you have a "Unblock" button at the bottom. If you do, then move the file to the desktop, click on Unblock, and move the file back.

WOW! That just work great. Thank you Shawn!

I've upload the document.zip with the two modified Library Icons in case someone would do the same.

Appart that the "Icons" folder have to be in System32 (x86)...see the Icons zip file.

It just have to be drag & drop in:C:\Users\YOU\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries, to replace the others one.

And all is done!
Cheers!
