Is there any chance of fixing those url's to download the 'enable tab in desktop/contacts'. Or the registry info needed.

...Many Thanks, Chris

Change default icon download button doesn't work?

Hi Guys,
First thing, I would like to thank the person who put this tutorial because it help me a lot! But now, I have an issue with two of my icons: Contacts & Desktop.

The problem is that I download both reg. files that modified the registry so that we can customize both icons but nothing happened with me and I followed the exact steps. I also made sure I was doing it from: C:\Users\(user-name) folder.

Do you have another alternative to change both icon folder?

Thanks in advance,

Yannik

Hello Yannik,

Does your Contacts & Desktop folders have a Locations tab?

If so, be sure that you used the "enable" download. If the Customize tab is not added when you check afterwards, then try restarting the computer.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks a lot for replying Shawn. About the location tab, yes they both have one but there is no "customize" Tab. I will try what you said right now by restarting my computer and let you know if it work.

Thanks again

Are you sure that you are using the Enable downloads, and not the Restore downloads?

Thanks for the tutorial

Seems like downloading the reg files doesn't work on Chrome (the latest stable version). But downloading works on firefox.
