Is it possible to create a batch file to bring up the "change icon" tab
in Folder Properties, instead of going through these 4 steps each time?
If yes, how would you write the Syntax?
The Batch File will have to execute from any Folder.

Syntax required:
1. Right Click Folder
2. Click Properties
3. Click Customize Tab
4. Click Change Icon

No. However you can change an icon with a batch file. Icons information is stored in a hiiden text file called desktop.ini in the folder. Look at one with notepad. You could do it with vbscript and send keys.

That's what I have been doing David - editing each Desktop.ini file (it's
very tedious when multiple files/folders are involved).
I can manage a batch file with Notepad, but do not know what "vpscript and
"keys" are.
Can you point me out to some source or site to help me do this?

Thanks

============================
Basically it is this ...
For easy recognition, all folders in my data are assigned an Icon.
The Desktop.ini files in each folder point to a specific Folder in which all
my icons are stored, which is never moved, so that the icons are always
visible in Explorer View.

What baffles me is that in moving or copying data folders, the icon is not
always visible, even after an F5 refresh. The Desktop.ini file are copied, but
the icons are still not visible. This requires the laborious right-clicking
each folder Properties, change Icon etc. Then and only then the icons are
visible again.

(N.B. this usually happens when copying files either from a CD/DVD or from a
Windows Briefcase, to another folder)
If the path to the icon is correct and the ini file is present, why does
this happen?

To do this, create a compound string argument that represents a sequence of keystrokes by appending each keystroke in the sequence to the one before it. For example, to send the keystrokes a, b, and c, you would send the string argument "abc". The SendKeys method uses some characters as modifiers of characters (instead of using their face-values).

Try running the "repair icons" option on the repair node of TweakUI. Might
be simpler.

Appreciate your time and patience David.
I am not very knowledgeable in these matters, but your explanation was clear
and informative. Will try out asap and let you know how it went.
Thanks.

No Jon, the icons are not damaged: in fact they are visible in the original
location.
If I am not mistaken, won't this node in TweakUI revert back the
personalized icons to the Windows defaults? I don't want that.

The phrase "repair icons" is misleading. It repairs your icon cache (which
is the problem) on the basis of your desktop.ini files, maintaining the
folder personalisation. You can always set a system restore point, if you
are concerned (and probably best to use the latest version of TweakUI)

Another way would be to delete the file

IconCache.db

in

C:\Documents and Settings\/***USERNAME***\Local Settings\Application Data

and to reboot. TweakUI doesn't require a reboot
