How to Prevent or Allow Themes to Change Windows 7 Desktop Icons
This will show you how to allow or prevent the icons you changed for the Computer, User's Files, Network, and Recycle Bin desktop icons from being changed to the icons included in a new theme instead in Windows 7.
1. Right click on a empty area of the desktop and click on Personalize. (See screenshot below)
2. Click on the Change desktop icons link at the upper left corner. (See screenshot below)
After I have downloaded and extracted my custom Windows Classic theme files in the C:\Windows\Resources\Ease Of Access Themes folder and when I right-click on Desktop and click Personalize, will my custom Windows Classic theme change all or part of Desktop icons?
