Windows 7: Changing the icons in my user folder?

Changing the icons in my user folder?

Hey guys, is there anyway to change the icons in my user folder? For example the "My Music" and "My Videos" folders? When I go to the properties and go to the Customization tab, there is no option to change the icon like other folders have. Any ideas?

Hello Nogills,

Yes, there sure is. It must be done at the C:\Users\(User-Name) location though.

Oh awesome thanks, I managed to change them all except the "Desktop" folder. for some reason it is the only one without an option to change. Is there anyway to change it? I got all the other ones though, so thanks

You're welcome Nogills.

There's an option for the Desktop user folder in the yellow TIP box in OPTION TWO in the tutorial above.
