I want to make my desktop look a little more to my liking, and that includes changing some of the icons. One of the icons I want to change is the shared drive icon:

enter image description here

I want to do this using the Registry to make the solution more portable.

I know that I can change some icons using the following key:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons

In particular, keys 3 and 4 represent the folder icons:

Name        Type        Data
(Default)   REG SZ      (value not set)
3           REG_SZ      s:\ico\places\folder.ico
4           REG_SZ      S:\ico\status\folder-open.ico

I’m guessing that there should be a setting for the above icon, but I can’t find any information anywhere on that.

Any ideas what the registry key for the shared drive icon is?
