64-bit Windows 10 Pro


You would want to left click on the Download button above, then click on Save if available instead of right clicking it.

You're welcome Ensi. If you can remember what problems you ran into, then please post back with them so that I can update the tutorial to hopefully help others avoid the same problems that you had. :)

Hello Aazmath, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can click on the blue "Download" button below step 1A to get the Download.ico file in a ZIP file. I'm not sure what you mean, but clicking on the link will help show you where to create the Library file at for this.

Hope this helps,

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

Thanks Brink for that Icon...

I was wondering if i can easily change the Workstation Library Icon, instead of the one c:\users\Downloads...
I have only change the C:\users\public\downloads with the icon you have put on here...

Is it possible to have somewhere the recorded TV icon the we can find inside the system32 "imageres.dll" for doing the same apply inside the Workstation Library (i case i'm creating a new Library)?
Or how do i extract it? I mean I want the Icon be in a dedicated folder...

Hi, I accidentally changed my downloads library to C drive. When I click on the downloads library tab, it takes me to C drive, rather than just the downloads folder in C drive. I can't change it back. Anyone got some advice for a dingbat? Thanks!!
