I have many colorful XP shortcut icons on my desktop and I have 10 plain
folder shortcut icons. Google search for XP icons gives me frankly a
headache. I'd like a user friendly XP Icon folder program that has say 200
xp icons and all it takes is a click on the one icon and a click on the
desktop icon and Walla the desktop icon is changed. Does anyone know and use
such a program and where may I purchase it. Freeware is even better but
perhaps that is asking too much.
Thanks for any help

Dannie;

You can collect icons one at a time or in groups, all for free,

http://www.jeffs-icons.com/

http://virtualplastic.net/scrow/misc.html

http://www.it-mate.co.uk/icons/

Also search Google or whatever for icons.

Download what you want, store all in a folder named icons, maybe.
Right-click the folder you want to customize, and then click Properties.
On the Customize tab,Click Change Icon to change the graphic that represents
the folder in all views except Thumbnail view.
Follow through to where your "icons: folder is.

Hope this helps. Let us know.
