    Folks:


    Sometimes there is the need to customize the look of the icons on my
    desktop. The default file is URL.DLL and is located in the "system32"
    folder.
    URL.dll contains a mere 4 different looking icons. SHELL32.dll goes a bit
    further and provided a few dozen choices for how a desktop con looks.

    * Is there any other files (DLL of other) that I can use to customize
    (change the look of) the icons on my desktop ?

    Thanks,
    JoJo.

    try those in *C:/Windows\System32\moricons.dll*

    You can also download free icons from the web at:
    http://www.iconarchive.com/

    The download links in each icon set have several different formats so
    be sure to download only the *.ico (Win)* versions for Windows XP
    otherwise they won't work.

    And the old Program Manager (prelude to Windows Explorer) that is still
    included in Windows XP.

    progman.exe
