We're all different to some degree In how we use, configure and customize the Windows 10 operating system. Based on our computing environment, the need to change desktop Icons from their default state to something that's clearly Identifiable, allows ease of use with the tasks at hand. Whilst this Is quite simple with normal Icons, It's not the same with the Network Icon. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to change the default Network Icon without the aid of third-party tools.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. Normally, when you want to change a Folder or shortcut Icon, you'd right-click It, select Properties > Change Icon. Let's try doing this with the Network Icon that's located on my desktop. I've right-clicked It, and selected Properties as shown below.
Rather than having the Change Icon button readily available, It's actually launched the Network and Sharing Center.
So how do you get to change the Network Icon, when the option to do so Is clearly not available? Well, I'm glad you've asked! It's quite a simple process, that's achieved via a feature named Desktop Icon Settings but If you're unaware of Its existence, you'd probably have a difficult time locating It. Let's see exactly how this Is done, by using my step-by-step tutorial.
