    Can subfolders get a recognizable icon on the total area?


    Hello

    Can subfolders get a recognizable icon on the total area?

    When i right click at a subfolder - properties - customize - mapicons > other icon - browse and then choose the .ico image i want, always get this:

    Click image for larger version.

    The result: Click image for larger version.

    What i want is the image on the total area of the folder-icon. Is this possible?

    The .ico file/image isn't the right size? That's not it. There is always a boarder around icons on the desktop when you click on them.

    I have the selection color the same as my desktop background color so I don't see the boarder. But that is on Windows 7.

    When you click on an icon, yes, but is it possible to decrease the boarder till you only see an image or an image with a very small boarder? And if you click on that image, that the folder will be open.
    That the image is recognized als a normal folder > Click image for larger version.
