If you want to change the icons of multiple file folders on your computer at the same time, you can do so using the same program window. However, it is important to note that all of these folders will have the same icon. The icon that visually represents all of the file folders will be changed to the same image at the same time when you simultaneously change multiple folder icons in Windows.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Highlight all of the folders for which you want to change the icons. Right-click on any one of the highlighted folders and click "Properties."

  2. 2

    Click the "Customize" button.

  3. 3

    Click the "Change Icon" button. Choose an icon from the list on the screen or click "Browse" to choose your own icon that you've either created or downloaded from the Internet.

  4. 4

    Click "OK" to change the folder icons for multiple folders on your Windows computer.
