Ones thing I’ve always hated even way back during the days of Windows 95 was the look of the Windows Drive Icons. It always drove me crazy. They just look so freaken lame. In this post I will explain how to change your Windows drive icons not just for Windows 7 and Windows Vista but for other versions of Windows as well.
What we will need.
- Some images that we will use for our drive icons
- An Image Editor (optional)
- Windows installed on your computer
- A knowledge of the Windows Registry
First we will need images for each drive that we will be wanting icons for. If you already have these images, maybe you downloaded them from Google then you wont need to make them with an Image editor. Once we have these images we will place them in a directory on our computer. I placed my images in a directory called icons and put the directory in the Root of my Root Drive which in my case my Root Drive is the C Drive.
