Is it possible to create a batch file to bring up the "change icon" tab
in Folder Properties, instead of going through these 4 steps each time?
If yes, how would you write the Syntax?
The Batch File will have to execute from any Folder.

Syntax required:
1. Right Click Folder
2. Click Properties
3. Click Customize Tab
4. Click Change Icon

No. However you can change an icon with a batch file. Icons information is stored in a hiiden text file called desktop.ini in the folder. Look at one with notepad. You could do it with vbscript and send keys.

That's what I have been doing David - editing each Desktop.ini file (it's
very tedious when multiple files/folders are involved).
I can manage a batch file with Notepad, but do not know what "vpscript and
"keys" are.
Can you point me out to some source or site to help me do this?

Thanks
