    Hello OMSOni, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm sorry, but I do not understand what you are asking?

    Could you provide more details of what you did, what the folder icon looked like before and after, and how this relates to this tutorial?

    This may be a silly question, but did you select a different icon than what is showing in your second screenshot below before applying it?

    The one that is shown selected in your screenshot is the default folder icon for it.

    Can this also blame the cache, in case another icon is selected?
    We can try to CTRL+scroll or change size to see if it refreshes or not.

    Hello Horace,

    If another icon was selected, then that may help, or rebuilding the icon cache.

    Thanks Shawn.

    I always used that workaround on files and folder previews because the data wasn't always refreshed or updated on time.
