How do I change the icons in the library folder? I used a simple trick from howtogeek to change the location of a start menu item. What I did was to change the music library shortcut to a www directory shortcut since I frequently open the directory. How do I change the small music icon? alt text

FYI, you can create your own custom libraries without having to do anything to the existing ones. Some libraries, like the music library, are used by the system in certain specific ways (such as by windows media player), so it may be better to not touch them if you don't have to, and create your own. – nhinkle Dec 30 '10 at 7:14
tried that, its just that you can really place the custom library in the start menu – Ieyasu Sawada Dec 30 '10 at 10:36
