    Why is it not working? Seems straightforward enough - describe what goes wrong.

    Well I just tried it and it worked with no problems. I searched for naruto icon folder, downloaded the .zip - then I just went through the customise steps with the folders and navigated to the folder. The pack I downloaded already had the folder images saved as .ico files. Are you trying to generate your own images, you might need a proper icon generator, just saving a jpeg and renaming the image to .ico won't work.

    There are icon generators online now.

    thanks Jac, I was doing it as you described: renaming the image to .ico do you know of any decent image to .ico converters or should I just google ?

    Glad you got it solved but I think this should be moved to the software/windows forum.
