Hey guys, been messing with desktop a lot lately since I am trying two monitors out.

I am trying to change windows' folder icon to

this pack.

When I use photoshopcs4 or iconbox(toycon now) to convert, the edges are so aliased they will cut the monitor! They look like junk.
I tried 32x32, 48x48 and windows looks bad. I also tried in desktop properties advanced etc changing the icon size to 64, but when you get a save as dialog box the left side is huge and ugly.

Here is a screenshot of my desktop what I am trying to achieve is just two folders between date and rainmeter that will hold all files I use temporarily, and upload which is a photoshop actions target that I use often for resizing as a process. You can see in photoshop how nice the one folder should look, and below it is gbhawhage.

I tried fences, but there was an issue with cntrl alt delete 2x when installed and stuff, then you still have to minimize all your stuff to get at your desktop still.

Anyone good at customizing know how to use the great pngs as icons?

I did read that reduction by 1/2 multiple times is better than going from 512 to 32. Doing this did clear up the icon considerably in pscs4.

Now to find the program that changes JUST the desktop icon size..
