    Hi. I believe the problem is that you are in "Documents Library" view, rather than the actual "Folder Location"
    1. Right-click the folder you want to change the icon of
    2. Select "Open Folder Location"... it's just above "properties"
    3. Once you are in the "Folder Location", right-click the folder again that you want to change
    4. Select "Properties" at the bottom
    5. Select "Customize"... the far right tab
    6. the "Change Icon" button is at the bottom
    [Note: For the changed icon to show up in the "Library" view also, you may need to close and re-open file explorer
    Hope this helps.

    Dear

    1. Open your resource hacker, Click on file > open ; it will open an window naming "open file continuing resource ...." make it sure that the location of look in box is System 32 . Type the filename "imageres.dll" , click the open button.

    2. Click on the plus sign in front of "Icon Group" .

    3. Now change 3, 4, 5, and 6 respectively with the Custom Icons . (The process is the same as described in Icons - Change Using Resource Hacker ; from step 9 to step 13; repeat steps for each number) {Change both 3 and 4 with the same open folder icon, 5 with the back side icon , and 6 with the front side icon}

    4. Scroll down to 162, and change it (using the same process, with the icon having some stuff in it) .

    5. Now File > Save As . In the "Save File As" window, set the save location to Desktop, give the filename "imageres.dll" and save .

    So your custom imageres.dll file is ready . Now it is to apply .

    6. Take Ownership of the original imageres.dll file, have a manual backup of it , and place the modded one to C:\Windows\System32 , choose Copy and Replace, if prompted . Otherwise, you may use System File Replacer to do the replacement .

    So your custom folder icon set is done . Now make it workable .

    7. To make the icons take effect , rebuild the icon cache, and delete the thumbnail cache.

    8. Restart your Computer . After restarting, you may have another Disk Cleanup, to make the changes perfectly. If the thumbnail Cache is not deleted and Icon Cache is not Rebuilt, no change will take effect at all.
