Windows 7: Change default location for "Change Icon..." button?

03 Feb 2012   #1

Change default destination for "Change Icon..." button?

In Windows 7, all the good icons are in %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll, but we're still taken to the old SHELL32.dll when it comes time to change an icon.

Is there a registry key or something that we can change to remedy this?
