Hello Jon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you upload and attach your icon here? I'll test it out to see what may be the problem.

Did you refresh the Libraries window afterwards to see if that may be it?

Jon,

You can place the .ico file in a ZIP folder and upload that instead. I would need to see the actual .ico file that you are using to help rule out if there may be a problem with it as well.

John,

Those icons seem to work fine for me. I did notice that we now have to log off and log on to fully apply the icon change to all locations of the library folder though.
