    Default IE 5.5 Favorite Folders

    Using IE 5.5
    In Favorites main folder list, is it possible to display an icon instead of the normal yellow folder.
    I see that in sub file or the shortcut within the favorite folder that in properties it is possible to change the icon.
    Id like to be able to change some of my favorite folders using an icon or different coloured folder.
    If this is possible and how can I do this?
    Mac.

    There is a freeware program here that you could try. It sounds like it does what you are wanting to do as well as other little tricks.

    Or you could use the instructions on this page to alter the registry if you are experienced with this kind of thing. Be warned however, that altering the registry can be risky. Check out our FAQ (link top right of this page) on the Registry for some info on this.
