For my last 2–3 computers I've always changed a lot of the Windows stock icons with ones that I ether downloaded, or got from a CD that a friend of mine gave me back in 2000. In Windows 98 and Windows XP I'd just go to a folder and install them there.
With Windows 7, how can I use my custom one of a kind icons?
There's no folder to put them in, and when I try to right click and just use the old... Properties, change icon, it keeps looking for folders also. So when I get to the icon itself, it wants to "open it" instead of "installing it".
And in the registry –
%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll – how can I add other icons to it? It won't let me.
