    hi David
    can you share 3D Objects icon
    To get the 3D Objects icon, you only need to open the 3D Builder app, and the folder appears in your userfolder.

    The "Change Icon" button isn't appearing in the Customization tab for me.

    To clarify, this is the Properties Window for my OneDrive Destination Folder, located at "C:\Users\David\OneDrive"
    I suspect this is being prevented by something deeper in OneDrive's Windows 10 integration. Can someone help me figure out what's preventing this and find a workaround?

    The OneDrive folder contains a hidden "desktop.ini" file that needs to be edited to pick up the newer OneDrive folder icon from "imageres.dll".

    Enable "Hidden items" and untick "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" in Windows Explorer and open the OneDrive folder.

    Open "desktop.ini" and change "IconResource" to read:

    Code:
    IconResource=%SystemRoot%\System32\imageres.dll,217

    Save the changes and close the file. You might need to rebuild the icon cache to see the updated icon, but a restart should probably do it.

    I was also inspired by David's initial post to create my own Podcasts folder icon using the microphone icon from the Windows 10 Device Manager:

    I think Microsoft fixed the OneDrive icon.
