Customize Folder Windows

Yet its another tutorial on how to change folder on Windows OS to taste your suite. So why write it? lately i'am creating Windows Icon set on DevianArt. I named it Amadeus icon setAmadeus icon set, derived from latin amare "to love" and deus "good". Love of god. The name came across when i designing the icon while listening Mozart masterpieces.

Ok the easiest way to customize folder totaste your suite is the following way
1. Select folder you want to change its icon
2. Hit ALt + Enter or Simpli right clicking it and Select Properties
3. Select customize tab, Change icon

4. Point to your icon, and voila :).
Advantage: It's a piece of cake :)
Disadvantage: It's work one by one, so you if you have more folder that mean more process.

The Easy way
Easy? yep. Basically it is done using any third party software. You can googling it.
The software i use here is Tune Up Utillities since i know it since 2009 version. Its paid app so i wont give a link, you can search manually :D
Here's the step
1. Open tune up utillities any version you have, mine is 2011.
the window would look like this

2. Select Customize Window tab

note that different version had different Interface but it will look alike and of course it will work too, so dont worry :)

3. Select System element, then choose explorer

4.Scroll down to the bottom, select folder close and click Replace Icon. Browse through your icon.
Do the same for folder open.

5. Hit apply, and reboot just in case it didn't work.

To check if it work or not is simply by creating new folder.

Every new folder will look like "close folder" you choose before.

Advantage: It's mass change, you just need 1 process.
Disadvantage: Homogenic, that is mean bored. And it can't change fully. Every folder created before this process will not display as it is when the view is Medium icon or larger :(
Tip: Use this to change tier 2 folder in your windows Folder
Tier 1 : Every folder created under Partition e.g D:\Music
Tier 2 : Every folder created under tier 1 e.g D:\Music\Classic
and so on.

The Hard way,
it can be done using 2 method.
1. Using Registry Editor
2. Change the imageres.dll
Remember Management or any Economic based Class? It said that High Risk High Return.
just like that quotation, the hard way will create awesome effect. Apparently i have work to do, so i'll write later, maybe, or you can googling it using that keyword.
cheers :)

Genesis, Pilot, Intro

Start everything over! Seperti sebuah program ataupun operating system, segala sesuatunya pun terkadang perlu dimulai dari awal. Kemudian? Start a brand new day, dengan cara baru juga tentunya.
In the post of “Starting over” state, come out first step. Out there the wise man says that the first step is the hardest. And yeah, I can’t deny that. From nothing to become anything need an extra energy, just like the universe itself with the big bang theory. These energy can come out in any way, any shape and anytime of course. Me myself call it as inspiration. From inspiration come an idea and then becoming an action.
With tremendous effect can be achieved from just a little inspiration, high price is a fair cost. How much? I can’t just say with an exact number in any measurement. I remember in my class that I ever heard an opportunity cost theory. Maybe it can describe the right answer on “how much” question. It can be worth an amount of time, chances, or even the real money.
Lately I’m onto monastic music. Yeah that’s right, it’s a classicall music or some people might call it an opera music because it’s sometimes performed in an opera. Nowadays, you will find that kind of music easier in movie. The Lord of the Ring is an great example. It’s classic because there is something similar with classical music, movement if I might give an example.
Monastic music is kind of new for me. Even that I had listen classical music for a long time but I never listening monastic music purposely. It’s need a log time for me just to enjoy monastic music. Time in here is a fair cost for me just to enjoy monastic music. I can said it’s a high price.
Everything has it prices FYI, so that you can buy anything you want. Anything! But with the right currency of course.
It’s sometimes a shame that we can’t afford what we are really wanted. But it doesn’t mean we fail. Once again, what we really need is an exact currency to buy what we are really want.
Is a starting over worth a try? Is a starting brand new day worth to shot? Yes it is. With a fresh start we are free from any premises or assumption. A Fictional character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once had said that “to know well something we must free from any premises” or something like that I presume. With some premises we once believe, later it can affect how we treated the object. What object? Anything, like our goal we wanted so much or even Anyone wanted or not wanted so much .
How we treated something will affect that thing reaction toward us. Is our goal treated just like destination or just a dream will then decide what it will become.
So let just face it without any premises. Still with me? I believe you all will say yes cause it’s just like a piece of cake. But Still don’t believe me? And again I will believe you all will say yes. What I give is just quotation from fictional character, what a joke. Want the real one? Go find your Senior School physic book. I mean it really. There will be a topic about someone successfully develop a new theory that later change the world. His theory is different from the rest. How can it become different? You know the answer. He once said that what he did to waste his unoccupied time is just to rethink any theory without any premises.
g.l. and h.a.n.d. !
