Hi,

Can anyone explain how I can replace the boring yellow folder with another relevant icon, ie, a jpeg of the club's crest ?

I've tried right clicking and gone to properties but it ain't working?

Any ideas?

Thanks

Right click on it -> properties -> customize (works for me)

Ok Rob, I tried changing it using a standard jpeg picture but it wasn't having it for me either. I've just created my first icon (zipped) and it seems to do the trick.
I've attached it here. Dump it in a folder somewhere and in the folder properties under "customize", select "change icon" and browse to where the icon picture is.

Hope this does the trick. :p

I just used the attachement in this thread to change one of my desktop icons. I then accidentally did it to two of my current icons, so they are now the same, and I would like to change one back to its original image, could anyone please tell me how to do this as I don't know where to find the old image. There is no default setting I can find, could anyone inform me of the destination of all the old icons?
