    How to Customise icons in the Control Panel


    Hi Guys,

    I have been using CustomiserGod to change the icons in Windows 10, but as we know the programme has its limitations as to which icons it can change. So my question is: Is there another way to change the icons in the control panel or any icons in Windows 10 anywhere?


    PC icon change PC case to Blue transparent cube in Control Panel [​IMG]


    I found a Windows 8 tutorial that tweaks the registry to change icons, but I'm not sure if it applies to Windows 10 as I couldn't change it after following the steps.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    2. Navigate to the key below in the left pane of Registry Editor. (see screenshot below)

    2. If you used Option One, delete the DefaultIcon key located below. (see screenshots below)

    *note The default icon is: %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-27
