yes its my new hobby ...i used Style xp so far ..but it has restricted file types extensions for the icons....(it takes only files as .iconzip .iconset and not .ico !!!!) i.e. i cannot put the icons i want ...i can only change the desktop files onoe by one from the display properties...
i want to change all the folder icons (i hate the dull yellow icon ) . i hope ill manage it with windowsblind ..thanx

Create a file called "desktop.ini" in the directory you want to iconify, and put this in it:

[.ShellClassInfo]
IconFile=C:\Icons\MyIcon.ico

If it's an icon library, do this instead:

[.ShellClassInfo]
IconFile=C:\Icons\MyIconLibrary.icl
IconIndex=0

You can change the IconIndex to change the icon it pulls from the icon library. It starts at 0.
