I tried to change the folders' icon through :

Windows Explorer : Tools > Folder options > File Types

I then clicked and changed the icons for :

1) Drive (File type) > Advanced > Change Icon
2) File Folder > Advanced > Change Icon
3) Folder > Advanced > Change Icon

However, after changing all the above, the folders and
drives were not working properly.

The drive icon, when double clicked, will not open, and
instead a search menu window will pop up.

The folder icon, when double clicked, will open in a new
window.

My question is : How do I apply back the default settings
for the folders and drives?

You do a system restore to a date/time before you made your mess.
