    Windows 10 folder CUSTOM icon


    Hi, I am new, so apologies if this is the wrong area to post in, I have set a 'Custom icon' via the folder properties file (Select folder, Right click, properties,etc) and I can see the image I want but it is surrounded by a folder still I was wondering if there is a fix or something to remove it permanently I will share a gyazo here so you can see for yourselves what I mean. LINK As you can see a folder acts as a border, I wish to remove it as a whole, thank you for reading!

    Hi @michaelukz, welcome to tenforums.com! :)

    You'll need to create a shortcut of the folder and apply a custom .ico (icon) file to it for the representing image.

    @Edwin, Thanks for the quick response! I apologise however, I don't quite understand, I have a shortcut to the image in the file I want the image to show on, (see link) And just to clarify this is the directory of the file itself (see link) I don't quite think I get what you are saying, sorry.


    OK to admins sorry for spam they were not showing up, I also have no idea how to delete the other two posts. sorry

    There is likely to be a delay with new users posts as part of the site security systems - you should be good to go now
