How to change icons in Windows 7, vista and xp - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will see how we can change the applications icons, icons for My Computer, Recycle Bin and icons partitions. The method is extremely simple and does not require any software. To change icons in Windows can be used various methods using additional software but I chose not to complicate today. Using software to change icons, we have the disadvantage that the software will have to go to startup (with Windows) plus the software and changed the icons on the windows will remain as long as the software is installed. If we uninstall the software, the icons of Windows will return to normal or worse will be displayed as for an unknown file. All you have to do is to change the icons to be very careful to video tutorial and have on hand some icons in. Ico that you find the thousands on Google. Us in the past I've done tutorials on customizing exactly about how can we change the Windows Orb button 7 and Vista. I'm sure this tutorial will be very useful for those passionate about customization so I can only invite you to watch the video tutorial. Below are a few notes in case you want to change icons partition. Please look carefully for the written tutorial below to make sense!

Text to be written to the file "Autorun.inf" to change icons partition is:
[Autorun]
ICON = Driveicon.ico

Once placed icon with the file "Autorun.inf" in partition, you will need to restart give it to appear in My Computer. Just as was done for changing icons to partitions, you can proceed to change the icon and a USB stick or memory card so that when you insert the stick or the memory card in another PC, the icons you have set will be displayed.

        I installed Ubuntu 11.04.Din dezamagire.In Unfortunately a great addition to unity did not come with anything nou.Daca the other versions when passing to a newer version you just keep adding updates to core files to erase your entire system 11.04 Operating and lose all the data that they have salvat.Si 10.10 interface looks nice. My guess it does not really deserve to 11.04 past. I thought that people from Canonical will take front of the Microsot, but I I inselat.Asta's it!

    In my opinion it's easier with Icon Packager. Download a pack put it in the program, change the program icons after you no longer work with him. It's how you say it remains in tray and eat resources.

      You do text because you save not you put the extension ". Inf" and the name "Autorun" so his title is "Autorun.inf" and see that should you restart your PC to change icon partitions.

    Thank you Mr. AdrianGudus. When you get on the Buzau are a treat. It worked perfectly. Good health and all the best

  22. I have not commented much but I'm glad that now I have icons on drives, including external, because a picture is worth a thousand words and I slid click of a lot easier. But a small problem arose from a PC to which I have access (by administrator account) secured by Avira, simply jumps on the autorun.inf file and block it. I had and exemptions and so on. Other antiviruses have been good to him and left him alone.

      Write up in the search box to the right of the black edge Microsoft Office or Word or Office 2007 2010, hit enter and you will find the tutorial. have tutorial about both versions of Office and Office 2007 2010

      Good ziua.Invatati me what program and where to get it, a program written text, Microsoft 2007 for windows7.

      To write the text you do not really need Office, you can use the very nice Wordpad which is already installed on 7 windows, vista, xp.
      It's kind of office May light.
      I'm sure you'll like it more than the office because it is simpler and moves faster.
      C: \ Program Files \ Windows NT \ Accessories \ wordpad.exe
      Copy and put the link in the address bar of Windows Explorer (My Computer) then hit enter or better in search pasteaza it under the start menu and press enter.

      Not everyone did so keep school computers.
      Actually it was the folders that automatically hides system, I'm hiding anything. We have shown just how we like to see folders that OS intentionally hiding to avoid damaging the operating system and required significant system does not erase folders.
      If I have showed this to someone who had come to tell me / blame it does not appear to that folder and do not know what to do
      So I tried to straighten everyone
      you are so expert and so good that you know how visible folders do not know how to give change a theme that you needed this tutorial.
      In your place I would have never had the courage to comment ... at least not in the way you commented you but a little "bent" more humble ... hotshot.

    Hello
    Instead icon folders as I settle down permanently to each that you create?

  46. Howdy! Thank you for being there and for making so many useful tutorials for us, those without or with minimal knowledge in the IT field. I learned many useful things, including how to make a bootable stick with windows, no software installed, just a few commands in cmd ...
    Now, I know it may be a mess, but I get tired of the fact that the recycle bin icon changed after the method presented above, does not update full / empty until after manual refresh, compared to the windows, which is updated automatically when you delete something or give “empty recycle bin”…. how could i fix this?
    thank you very much!!
