Globally changing all folder icons

Is there a way to change all icons for folders to a custom one instead of changing every single one separately?

I tried looking for a way to do this, but haven't found a way yet. Maybe if you find where the icon is located and then replace it with a new one?

I found this program, Change Folder Icons 8.5. The download is just a trial version but I think it might serve the purpose of changing your default folder icon.
