    You need to right click on the folder icon, select properties then customise then Change Icon - you can then select a folder Icon to replace the one shown this could be a plain folder or another icon that better reflects the folder contents.

    If you are not sure of which icon to use you could try the Restore Defaults option on the icon selector

    Hi,
    Looks like you've already removed some thing otherwise it would show a description of the items :/
    So what else have you done deleted pictures and music ?

    Where did the 'labels' for those 2 entries go? (under your red arrows?)

    I don't know they just appear there without labels. That happens when i was fixing "right click new folder option gone" thing. I was following this New Context Menu - Remove Restore Default Menu Items - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I tried that already but when i was removing documents it removes two of them together the one with label and the other without label. And for downloads it is the same. What to do now?

    You could pin all the parent folders, (or any folder, for that matter), you desire to Quick Access then collapse the others...

    As this is related to a Tutorial on this site, I would suggest that you ask your question at the bottom of the comments for the actual tutorial, the tutorial's author is likely to know more about possible issues
