You only need to replace 6805 unless you are using small icons on your taskbar, if you select small icons on your taskbar now it should change to the image you used.

This is how it should look.

I had the same problem with this one, I adjusted the exposure by -2 in PS and used the dark one.

this only works on dark backgrounds on light backgrounds its totally white

Thank you very much grim for the reply, if i just rename it to 6805 will that suffice? or will it look funny?

Out of curiosity, are you going to add a folder for .zip files? They're still yellow on my computer, but it doesn't really matter since I usually unzip them right away.

Yes I am including a Zip folder with the new set as seen on the screen shot (the last icon).

Cool, thanks! Too bad this isn't part of the blue folders though, which I'm still using. I guess I can just switch to these though if there's an installer for 7100.
