    to change the icons for My Computer, My Documents, My Network Places, or Recycle Bin, go to Display Properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop. Select one of the items and click Change Icon. Then point it to the icon, typically somename.ico

    for shortcuts, you can change their icon by right-clicking them, selecting Properties, clicking Change Icon, then point it to the new icon.
