Windows Registry: Set open folder default icons for all A-Z drive letters and Desktop Shell Folder in Windows 7

/ Published in: Windows Registry
Save to your folder(s)

Based upon the Drive Icon Change Windows Vista tweak and the shell icons registry settings found at the respective links below, this Windows 7 / Vista tweak will set the default icon of all A-Z drive letters (like C: for instance) and the Desktop to the open folder icon that Windows uses. This tweak is one step towards the final goal of having a standard default taskbar icon for Windows Explorer, irrespective of the current location of the Explorer instance.

Of course, a better solution would be an application to modify Windows Explorer so that its taskbar icon is configurable, but I have yet to find (or make) a solution that would be this flexible.
