How do I change the icons in Windows

You can change your WIN98 Dekstop icons by going to Start=> Settings => ActiveDesktop => Customize => My Desktop => Effects => click on the Change Icon button. These is a 'Browse' option that allows you to navigate to the folder where your new icon is located.

Hope this helps

Right mouse click on the icon. Left click properties. At the bottom left click on change icon. Then you can browse for your new downloaded icons. Click ok when you have your new icon selected and enjoy!!!

I would take the suggestions above. Another thing you might want to try is going into the registry and searching for the name that appears under the icon you want to change. Once the registry finds it, you should find "Default Icon" folder or something similar. Go into that and change the entry to the complete filename of the icon.
