Windows 10: Change all system icons? Solved

  1.    03 Feb 2017 #1

    Change all system icons?


    I am trying to make my Windows 10 look like Vista. I loved the way it looked, not so much how it acted. But I am having some real trouble here. How do I do this? Is there a way to import the vista imageres.dll or modify the windows 10? How can I make this work?

    I can't get these to change on "This PC" because there is no customize option under right click.


    But if I go to "C:/Users/Me" I can change the icons as seen here, but even so some do not have an icon customize option:



    I want to have the folders change as well. But not just NEW folder, all folders like below:



    Also the File Explorer Icons:

    Hi, this won't change all you want: I've used
    Damian's Homepage
    Iconchanger

    => some 77 Win 7 icons changed in imageres.dll.

    It creates a patched copy, but I've found I have to manually copy that in.

    Doesn't change everything of course.

    Try to find an icon package installer, (iPack), easiest.

    None of those are helpful. There has to be a way to do this in Windows Via Registry Editor or SOMETHING. It has to be possible.

    Try a Stardock product then.

    "Scorpion" Icon Packager from Stardock.
    However, there are still some elements that cannot be changed!
    (A custom iPack is still easier!)

    Drive icon changer


    Hi.
    Just read this........try using small portable file from

    My Drive Icon - LeeLu Soft Home

    Have used it in W7, Win 8.1 and now Win10 AV edition.

    Win10 updates sometimes reset them to default, but quick and easy to keep using it to revert to icon of your choice.

    I already found a way. I marked this solved. I had to use IconPackager.

    Neat program- works for me. Useful as for some reason imageres.dll modified by Icon Changer (free) suddenly no longer changes the disk icons. No idea why..
