Hello BuzzFuzz,

I'm not sure if I understand what you meant. Could you give more details please?

Do you mean that you are trying to keep the folder displayed as a larger icon using folder views?

OR

Do you mean that you used this tutorial on the first page to change the default folder icon, and it reverts back after you delete the .ico file used? If so, the .ico file will need to stay saved at the location you used in step 8 so Windows 7 will be able to use it. I would recommend to have the .ico file somewhere other than on your desktop instead, and use that path instead in step 8 to avoid accidentally deleting it by mistake.

Aaa problem is reverting...
So ico file must be saved somewhere on local disk. Strange Windows 7

Thx

Hello Cienico, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure what you need more pictures of since the screenshots in the NOTE box and EXAMPLE is what happens to the folder icons. Just substitute the examples with the icons you wanted to use instead. Please let me know if there was anything specific that you were wanting, and I'll see what I can do.

Hello Enzo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The NOTE box at the top of the tutorial can help show you how to have all folders have the new icon be turning off thumbnails.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
