Sap,

   You would have to manually edit the registry.  However, a small utility called MichaelAngelo will do this for you.  Please consider this utility cause it will do the same thing as you would have to do manually: edit the registry.  Also, it would be a lot safer and less tedious.  Tell me what you decide.

Sap,

   Microangelo will change a lot of things, but i don't know if it will do what you ask.  Leave this question open for a few days and see if anyone knows how to do it.  I thought Microangelo could change the Control Panel icon?

Dankh,

Microangelo changes the control panel icon, but only in the explorer not in the start menu. It's the same for the printer folder, find files or folders, people etc.

Sap,

   Are you sure Microangelo won't change the icons in the start menu??  I am certain that it does, because i did it to mine before.  In fact, you can change a lot of icons in the start menu (ie. documents, programs, etc.).

Sap,

  Opps, i was thinking of the major folders in the Start Menu, not the sub folders.  Sorry.  :)
