    Customised folder icon keeps changing back


    I like to give the My Documents folder a customised icon so that it will stand out but Microsoft clearly doesn't like you doing this, because after installing updates the icon frequently reverts to the default.

    Is there a way of customising the icon and making it stick?

    Using Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit, version 1909. OS build 18363.720

    :)
