Windows 10: Change Drive Icons Solved

    Change Drive Icons


    Can you change the drive icons in Win 10? I did this in Win 8.1. In regedit -HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURENTVERSION\EXPLORER, it won't let me type DriveIcons.

    Hello Clint,

    That error indicates that you already have a "DriveIcons" key.

    You might also see if you may be able to use an option below instead.

    Thanks Brink. When I went there manually, it was not there. I did a find and it went right to it. so I put in my stuff and it works. I don't know what happened.

    Hey there guys, did you figured out to install the latest version of Iconviewer on Win 10? I am interested to use an ico that is inside of a .dll file and I need to know the -xx index (e.g. C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-xx).
    I appreciate it,

    LE: it works sorry, .dll file/properties.

    Hello Sara,

    You should be able to just double click on its .exe file to install it. I use IconViewer 3.02 from below all the time in Windows 10.

    Download IconViewer

    yea, thanks, the app it works but I thought that it should be accessed like a regular program; instead, the app will add a tab in properties of the .dll files when we are able to see the icon index. I've made a few reg modifications and it works like a charm
