I have followed instructions to covert my photo into an icon so as to replace the icon on my folder but when I finally r/clk on my folder/properties /customize/change icon/browse/click to my 32x32 thumbnail ending with .ico , windows says that there is no icon in this file ! It's not a file but an icon...at least it's supposed to be. What am I doing wrong ?

You should be able to put any image file on a folder it doesnt have to be an icon file.This click here should change the file to an icon for you and all you have to do then is put it on the folder.

Open the photo you wont to change with irfanview
the select file/save as then select the icon extension from the drop down menu and save it.

OK I did it. I was not selecting .ico from the drop down menu. Many many thanks.
