How to Change the Library Icons Easily

If you wish to change the Library icons in Windows 7, you can now do so easily with the help of this freeware utility.

Replace Librarie Icons is a freeware portable tool which lets you change the Windows Libraries Icons. You can choose from various options and even browse to your favorite icons folder and use them.
