Any recommendations in changing the icons in Win10?  The yellow folder color has always annoyed the hell out of me a long with a list of others.

I prefer simple yet stylish like 
 

Windows 7 LIVE Folders icon


One of the problems I have with Windows 10 is all the icons are pigswill; drives, folders, libraries, desktop it all seems a regression from 7-8. I'm not a mac fan but Apple beat the hell out of MS on icons

Its always been possible to change the Windows icons for icons of your choice. Just search windows free icons and download what you need. Store them in a conveniently located folder. To change an icon, right click on the existing icon, choose properties and look under the shortcut tab for "change icon". Browse to the appropriate folder where the icons you want to use are stored and make your choice.
I have no doubt that W10 will have the usual selection of themes as well.

Think he means ALL the icons, not just separate files.

Any icon packs that fit with the Dark Theme of the latest Windows 10?
