Here's How to Easily Change the Folder Icon on a Laptop/Computer

Geekers - The folder icon is a display icon image of a file storage area. Actually, the folder icon adjusts the contents of the folder itself. For example, the music folder, the icon is a scale, but that only applies to Microsoft default folders. If we create a new folder or New Folder, usually the default image will be a brown folder.
