    It shouldn't matter what build or version you're running. It should work in all of them.

    Actually, I just figured out why it wasn't wroking. I had my name capitalized when, for some reason my computer name isnt.
    So it should have been "C:\Users\aaron\Desktop\Progams\Icons" instead of "C:\Users\Aaron\Desktop\Progams\Icons"

    The only other problem is that the two folders you see (Documents & Pictures) won't change. Is there a reason for this?

    That's good news so far, but there shouldn't be any reason why it wouldn't work on those folders as well.

    Any update about this issue? I'm having the same problem.

    In my case:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\CLSID\{088e3905-0323-4b02-9826-5d99428e115f}\DefaultIcon
    "C:\Program Files\Icons\folder-orange.ico"

    Simply has no effect.

    Hello, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I wish I could say yes, but I can't since it works for me without issue and can't reproduce what you guys are experiencing.
