    Can't put an image on a folder in File Explorer

    In File Explorer I right-click a folder and select Properties. In the Customise tab, under Choose a file to show on this folder icon, I select Choose file. I navigate to my Pictures folder and select an image and then click on Apply and OK. And nothing happens, the folder is unchanged and has no picture on it. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, please?

    I read in another post that this worked in Windows XP, Vista and 7. In Windows 8 and 10 you can change the icon of the folder with a custom ICO or BMP file.
