Change partition icon Win 10

How to change the partition icon on Windows 10

If you’ve ever wanted to change the partition icon on Windows 10, then you’re in the right place. Mention an icon for each (C :) (D :) (E :) or other partition. There are two ways to do this

FIRST WAY: Change the partition icon using Drive Icon Changer 

This program is primarily made for Windows Vista but also works fully for Windows 7,8,10.

Step 1: Download the Drive Icon Changer, unzip it from the archive and run it as an administrator (Right-click on it, and select Run as administrator). When you run this program for the first time, you may be prompted to install .NET Framework files by doing so. Drive Icon Changer is easily portable and does not require installation.

Step 2: After you have done the previous step, the Drive Icon Changer will start in which you will select the partition for which you want to change the icon and in the second field you will select the icon you previously prepared and click Save. The icon must have a .ico extension.

Step 3: You will then be notified that the icon has been successfully changed. It will also ask you to restart your computer.

If you want to change the icons for all partitions, you need to repeat this procedure for each one separately.

You can also change the icon on your USB memory.
 

SECOND WAY: Change the partition icon using a code 

Step 1: Copy the icon to the root of the partition for which you want to change the icon. For example, if you want to change “C”, copy it to C: \. Keep in mind that the icon format must have a .ico extension, and if that is not the case, you don't have a lot of online converters on the Internet.

Step 2: Now that you have done the previous step, copy the following code to Notepad and save it as autorun.inf at the root of the partition where you copied the icon. Be sure to save it as autorun.inf file.
In the code, replace Drive.ico with the name of your icon (EXAMPLE: ICON = icon.ico).

[autorun] ICON=Drive.ico

Step 3: Restart the computer. 
 
If you want to change the icons for all partitions, you need to repeat this procedure for each one separately.  
 
To restore the original partition icons just delete the icon and the autorun.inf file and restart the computer.
