Those icons are NOT present inside shell32.dll. Desktop, Pictures, Downloads, etc. and many more icons are inside imageres.dll which is C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll

  • Open the folder whose icon do you want to know.
  • On the address bar of File Explorer, type notepad desktop.ini.
  • Then check IconResource, IconFile, etc.
