Windows 10: replace default folder / imageres.dll
replace default folder / imageres.dll
I'd like to replace the default imageres.dll folder ( the yellow one ) with the folder attached here
Could anyone help me, please ?
I tried with Resource Hacker but i find it very difficult
I'm using Windows 10 Pro x64
Thank you in advance
Have a look at the tutorial below and see if it helps without having to hack imageres.dll
[Guide] How to Change Default Folder Icons in Windows - AskVG
I followed step by step all the instructions, but it doesn't work
Thank you, anyway
Shimshom gave you one easy and working way via askVG hack
Give attention that not all display view mode show the hacked custom folder icon
You have to enable "always display icons and not thumbnails" so you lose that feature but you see your default folder icon anywhere in windows explroer whatever view you chose
Okay, i'll give it one more try, thank you very much
I don't know but it's not working for me
Please, anyone help me to add this attached empty ico folder into the imageres.dll files ( system 32 and sysWOW64 )

Before going ahead with changing imageres.dll try to clear your icon cache then restart and if that doesn't work I'll try to change the icon for you
I did clear the Icon Cache, many times, i don't understand what am I doing wrong
Try to use an Expandable String Value instead of a string value in the Shell Icons folder and also create a Shell Folder Subkey in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and also create the same Expandable String Value with the path to your icon . When you insert the path to the icon do you remove the " from the path
I purchased Icon Packager, i can select whatever i want, as folder default icon, but i won't use / keep this software, because the option "always display icons and not thumbnails" is gone
Could you, please, modify the imageres.dll, with the blue icon folder ?
I'm not making any headway on answers.Microsoft.com so I'm hoping the experts here can explain why I cannot replace the Photos app with Windows Photo Viewer as the default image viewer (in build 10240). From all outward appearances, it seems Windows...

after various experiments about Windows customization i found out two things:
