    How to change drive icons/Win 10 Home


    How do you change drive icons in Win 10 Home?

    I tried resolution in Seven Forums, but that didn't work for Win 10 Home.

    Any help out there? Thanks, Jim

    You need a program such as reshacker or Restorator so that you can edit or replace the drive icon images in the imageres.dll file in your C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder
