    Modify Folder Icons Under "This PC" In Explorer/Navigation Pane


    As well directed by Brink I am starting this thread here as I was working off a tutorial with changing Library Icons when this problem came up, for your referencing delight ->> Change Library Icon in Windows 10

    I was able to get the library icons changed however I am really interested in the icons indicated in the below picture. I changed my drives icons already through registry and I'm just wondering if these require the same and where the key(s) are for it, although I think I may have stumbled upon it by happenstance. For example compare the two entries below the first picture. any thoughts? Note: many of the entries reference other entries there and other system links so use care if you tinker! Thanks for your help and attention in advance, no rush on any of this obviously...

    Sorry no time to crop need to rush out for a moment:

    Hello Patrick,

    I haven't forgot about you. I'm working on a tutorial for this now for you. It's a little bit complicated and detailed and trying to find an easier way, but I should have it posted later today. I'll post back with a link to the new tutorial when it's finished.

    Oh man, you are just too much of a good thing! I don't feel neglected at all! In fact I felt bad for not logging in until just a bit ago, I was like "Uh-Oh, now he probably thinks I'm one of these forum scrapers who get's what they need and leaves" lol, but then I was like, "he knows I need sleep...I know HE doesn't need sleep though" (you shawn, you are bionic!). Anyway, it's all good, take your time, it's just customizing, I'll live without my silly cat icons for awhile...awhile... lol Get to it whenever you can, never any pressure. Much like The Dude, The pup will typically abide!
