Windows 7: Customize Library Icons?

03 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 6956 32bit
Customize Library Icons?

Now every other folder and program in W7 will let you customize its icon.

Why is there no option to customize the libraries? I have multiple libraries that I have created. But they all have a generic icon for libriaries.

Does anyone know if there is a way to change this?
