Customizing Your Icons in Windows XP

Postby TeMerc » Sat Apr 12, 2008 11:07 pm

My new friend Sue asked me the other day how to customize icons on Windows XP, so I thought I'd write up all the ways to change the icons, both by using the built-in methods and also with additional software.
  • Changing My Computer, My Documents, and Recycle Bin Icons Manually
  • Change Icons for Specific Folders Manually
  • Using iColorFolder Skins to Customize Specific Folders Easily
  • Manually Setting Specific Icons for Removable Drives
  • Change Icons for Regular File Types
  • Change Icons for Application Shortcuts
  • Use Windows Vista Style Drive Icons
  • Changing Special Icons like Control Panel, Drives, Folders, Printers, Etc
  • So, Where Do I Get Free Icons From?
