Drive Icon Changer

By The Tech Turf Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Easily change most of your drive icons with this simple freeware.

Drive Icon Changer's simple interface needs little explanation, but our testers still had a problem with it. A key feature previews your intended icon, but it failed to perform for us. That problem aside, changing a drive icon takes just a click or two. The program works with standard ICO files as well as DLL files that include icons. There is the odd hoop to jump through with the DLL files, but nothing difficult to master. Removing a custom icon is a mere matter of entering the drive letter and pressing Remove. Some testers also found that Drive Icon Changer failed to change icons for certain drives. We could find neither rhyme nor reason for that issue.

Problems aside, this freeware is useful for any user who likes visual clues to differentiate drives.
