As it pertains to Windows 10.

I have one folder that has about 175 sub folders. I want to change the icons of all these folders to the same icon all at one time. I know how to do it individually but that is taking to long.

Tried the ancient "Ctrl+A" way (select all)?

Another way was to highlight one folder or file, then press the 'shift' key.. then choose another folder or file to highlight. Should highlight all within that group.
Some online links as to how-to. Maybe this one helps?

Thanks for the link but I want to change the folder icon, not rename the folder. What I want to do can be done individually but doing it that way is taking a ton of time. The original Winows 10 folder icons are hidious.

A lot has changed in the way Win 10 works than older versions. Maybe too much of a "this way, our way" of thinking?
Some old methods should still be viable with renaming files or folders, or changing icons.
