imageres.dll / change folder-win7-imageres-2.jpg

Not sure what you mean by your default folder
Which of those do you want to change?

You will have to find it .

I still don't know what you mean by default folder - do you mean all the folders that used to be yellow in explorer have been replaced by that one?

Have allok with an icon viewer - pick up imageres.dll and see which numbers have been replaced with the blue folder you have.

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/iconsext.html

Then you can use e.g. resource hacker to find those numbers and replace them.

Run res hacker as admin , browse to imageres.dll and find the numbers to replace

imageres.dll / change folder-imageres-reshacker.jpg

Of course, you will need the icons you want to replace the blue ones with.

You will need to edit 3/4/5/6 for the full folder, back, side, and closed view to get them to work properly.Copy the imageres.dll folder to your desktop. Replace 3/4/5/6 with your new icons using resource hacker and then replace the imageres.dll file in the system32 folder. Then repeat for the shell32.dll aswell
