Hi..are the folders on your Desktop shortcuts to where the folders are stored elsewhere or the actual folders themselves?
Both, actually. Discovered (referencing my previous post) that the "picture" option is only available for "thumbnail view" image folders.
But, happily, the "custom" tap in the folders "properties" seems to allow me to change the appearance of a single icon (as opposed to global changes to all of them, which I was trying to avoid).
I've downloaded a freeware (30 trial) icon program which seems to have plenty of icons in the library, but I am trying to figure out how to access them via Windows Explorer so I can use them. They seem to be in some sort of proprietary "library" format that can only be accessed by the freeware program. I'm sure I can get access to them with time, but I was hoping this would be a "down & dirty" operation.
Also, seems the program will allow you to edit the icons similar to MS Paint. I have noticed that, for all the thousands of icons available in the libraries (on the interent) making basic folder icons does not seem to be a particularly popular endeavor. Guess it's not "sexy"...
*I* think custom folder icons are VERY sexy, lol ...
