    As you can see from the pic below, the yellow folder icons in Vista
    "Computer" and "Registry" look the same no matter the folders are
    expanded or collapsed. There is no distinction between an expanded
    icon and a collapsed icon.

    But back in Windows XP, the yellow folder is closed in collapsed state
    while it will open when expanded.

    Is there a way to make the yellow folders look like that in XP's ??

    Best Regards

  2. I don't know, but have you search Google? I know that Windows Blinds have
    available options for customizing the look of folders.

    Thank you Andre for your reply.

    I did have searched Google but in vain. Just wanted to see if someone
    here knows the trick on how to customize the folder icon from within
    Vista. I know how to change the folder icons from small to bigger ones
    but don't know how to make that small icons open and closed.

    Best Regards
