    Help please!!


    Hi everybody!! I'm just customizing my W8 and I'm almost done with the part of the icons, the only icon I can't find in regedit is the one for downloads folder in navigation pane, so if anyone could tell me please the location of this key I would be very grateful.

    Thanks!!

    I leave a pic of the icon I'm talking about

    On my Win7 system I right-clicked on the Downloads folder that shows this same icon, clicked "Properties" and "Change Icon" - it tells me that it's one of the icons in C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll" - presumably from the Properties page I could choose something else.

    Have you tried that method in lieu of editiing the registry? (I don't have access to my Win8 system right now so I don't know if the same process works there, but I see no reason why it would not.) Or, try searching the registry for "imageres.dll" to see if you can find it that way. This being a system folder it might have a "real" name other than "Downloads" ...
