Right Side Start menu icons

Where in the registry can I change the icons for these items:
Default Icons, Device and Printers and games on the right side of the start menu? John

Hi John,

When you say the icons, do you mean the icon your User Account picture changes to as you hover over each item on the list (i.e. Camera/Printer, round Windows logo/green check, and Blue question mark)? And I think you mean Default Programs not Default Icons

Cheers,

Walker

Is it a fair practice to ask for reps ?

Also could make you loose your current rep (neg rep from a staff member), which happened to me way back when i was a newbie

You can change it. You just gotta edit imageres.dll (i believe thats the only one you have to edit)
