In this third article of the series called “Taking Control of your Windows Desktop“, I show you how to change the Windows 7 Desktop icons. The icons I’m referring to are not your regular “shortcut” icons, but the ones that are part of the Windows system, including Computer and Recycle bin.

Sometimes these system icons are not displayed on a new installation of Windows 7, and because they are quite handy, this can be a problem. That’s why I want to talk about them here.

[NOTE: In my book, the Windows PC Guidebook I talk in great detail about how to work with the Windows Desktop. CLICK HERE to learn more about the book.]
