How to Change Folder Icons in Windows 8 and 7

Do you want to customize the appearance of your folders in Windows? You can change the default icons of your folders to make them more distinctive and easier to recognize. In this article, we will show you how to change folder icons in Windows 8 and 7 using the built-in options or third-party tools.

Method 1: Using the Properties Option

This method is applicable to all recent versions of Windows, including Windows 8 and 7. You can use this method to change the icon of any folder on your computer, but not system folders like This PC or Recycle Bin. Here are the steps to follow:

Download Zip:

  • Navigate to the folder that you want to customize by changing its default icon.

  • Right-click on the folder and then click Properties to open the Properties dialog.

  • Switch to the Customize tab. Under Folder Icons section, click on the button labelled "Change Icon" to select an icon for your folder.

  • In the Change Icon window, you can select any icon you want from the built-in Windows icons, or you can click Browse to locate your own icons. Note that icon file must be in .ico format. You cannot select or use a picture file as a folder icon without converting it to .ico format. There are many free tools and online services out there to convert your pictures into icons (.ico).

  • Click OK to assign your selected icon to the folder.

  • Click Apply and then OK again to confirm your changes.

You can repeat these steps for any other folder that you want to change its icon. You can also restore the default icon of a folder by clicking Restore Defaults in the Change Icon window.

Method 2: Using a Third-Party Tool

If you want to have more options and flexibility in changing your folder icons, you can use a third-party tool that allows you to customize your icons with different colors, styles, and themes. One such tool is Folder Colorizer, which is a free program that lets you change the color of your folders with a simple right-click menu. Here are the steps to use Folder Colorizer:

  • Download and install Folder Colorizer from [here].

  • After installation, right-click on any folder that you want to change its color and select Colorize from the context menu.

  • Choose a color from the predefined list or click Colors... to pick a custom color.

  • The color of your folder will be changed instantly. You can also undo the color change by right-clicking on the folder and selecting Restore Original Color.

You can also download hundreds of free folder icons from websites like [DeviantArt] and use them with Folder Colorizer or the Properties option. Just make sure that the icons are in .ico format or convert them if they are not.


Changing folder icons in Windows 8 and 7 is a simple way to personalize your folders and make them stand out from the rest. You can use the built-in Properties option or a third-party tool like Folder Colorizer to change your folder icons with ease.
