I'm a "newbie Deviant" and also a "newbie" to learning "I" can use diff icons than those "permanent installations in WXP" (EEK)!!
BUT ... of all the "fun I've had" the most frustrating was finding "identical file icons" to those used in Vista ... and "golly-gee-whillokers" ... (smile) ... You "done did it ROYAL FLUSH" !!! WOW ... How talented you are ...
Don't suppose you got any other "icon creations in the wind" ... either Vista or WXP??? Huh?? Huh?? Huh?? Pwease??? Smile!
At the moment its very simple.... right mouse click on any icon you want to change and select properties.
Select the shortcut tab and click on change icon, browse and select one of the folders i created and click ok.
In some cases, you will have a customize tab when you right click on an icon...so you will need to choose customize and do the same as above.
