    Changing Explorer Ribbon icons


    I'm struggling to change some of the Eplorer's Ribbon icons. I've successfully changed icons for:
    This PC –> Ribbon —> System tab –> Open Settings and System properties. Those icons were located in shell32.dll

    1. However I absolutely cannot change icon for This PC –> Ribbon —> System –> Access media
    I found a similar icon in imageres.dll and replaced it without any success: the drop-down icon in "Connect to a media server" changed but not the main one.

    2. Another icon I cannot find is on Sharing tab of Ribbon –> Stop sharing (lock symbol).

    3. And last one is on This PC, select internal drive –> Ribbon –> Manage tab –> BitLocker

    The reason I wanna do it is @ 200% DPI scaling those icons look damaged and pixelated or just out of place by design.

    Here's a quick temporary screenshot of progress (random icons for testing purpose applied):

    You might have some luck with 'Customiser God'

    Note it lists explorer ribbon icons.

    However note you will lose these on each major upgrade build or if you do an in-place upgrade repair install, and possibly if you run sfc /scannow, so be prepared.

    Thanks buddy dalchina, I've already tried this piece of software before 'reshacking'. It's a very poor software in terms of Windows 10 support. Unfortunately it's not capable of changing Ribbon things at all .
    I've tried changing in latest Insider Preview: same! Help. Maybe flushing some hidden icons cache will work?
