    Very nice, but if you do not want to work with the registry, you may use this simple method - lokks more involved than it really is.

    a) Right click on the folder in question and "Open folder location"

    b) Right click on subject folder > Properties > Customize tab

    c) Go to "Change Icon" and browse to the folder where you stored your .ico

    d) Pick your .ico > Apply and you are done
