These are the folder icons that come with Windows 11 in .ICO format, including custom folder icons.

Examples of custom folder icons that display at any size include:

  • Adobe
  • Steam

These custom folder icons only show at the largest size:

  • TV
  • Settings
  • HTML
  • Backup
  • Software
  • Batch
  • JPG
  • PNG
  • PSD
  • Meetings
  • Powershell
  • Screenshots
  • Projects
  • Registry
  • USB

How to Install:

  1. Download the .zip attachment and extract its contents to a permanent location you can find later.\
  2. Locate your user folder by navigating to C:\Users\[YOUR-USERNAME].\
  3. Either find the folder that you’d like to customize or create a new folder.\
  4. Right click the target folder and select “Properties.“\
  5. Under the “Customize” tab, select “Change Icon…”.\
  6. Navigate to your custom .ico file and select it, and click Apply.
    Note: it’s recommended to find a permanent place to store your custom .ico files so they don’t get moved.
