    Hope my Windows Vista might helps.

    Windows folder icons are separate images that are stored and linked to folders on your computer. You can create a custom icon simply by making an image and saving or converting it to an icon file, which has the extension ".ico"

    Step 1: Draw a few rough sketches of the icon you're going to create. It will save you time while making it.

    Step 2: Open any graphics program. It can be as simple as Microsoft Paint or as complex as Adobe Illustrator.

    Step 3: Create a square canvas. Any size will do, but sizes less than 100 pixels work better. For the best possible image, create one with the following dimensions closest to the size you predict the icon will be: 48x48, 24x24 or 16x16.

    Step 4: Create your icon design using the tools in your graphic software. Save the file as a .jpeg file.

    Step 5:

    Visit an ICO converting website, such as convertico.com, converticon.com or prodraw.net/favicon/, and upload your .jpeg to their utilities.


    Step 6: Follow the on-screen instructions to adjust the size of your icon and download it when finished.

    Step 7: Right-click the folder you would like to change and select "Properties." Click the "Change Icon..." button on the "Customize" tab.

    Step 8: Select the ICO file you downloaded and click "OK."
