Yes, it's very eay to change the icons of folders.
All folders that have a non-standard icon must have a (preferably hidden) icon.lnk
in them. This link file, as with all Windows CE links, only have one row. The icon link file in Programs\Games (in the file system, \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games\icon.lnk
) contains, for example, the following:
is a DLL file that contains the icons of a lot of system icons. Its parameter in the Games example is -8229, which instructs the system to display the Games folder icon (a standard folder icon with some cards). You can freely modify this parameter value to use other icons, but it's even better to use third-party icon DLL's like the one at http://www.purepockets.com/modules.php? ... d_cat=6#26
(the PHM Icon Library).
The latter works exactly the same as the system shellres.dll
, but has a lot more folder icons to choose from.
Icons of individual apps, on the other hand, is far harder to 'hack' because Windows CE gets their icon in a completely different way that can't be hacked without more serious hacking.
