Only the Empty folder icon gets changed. For any other types of folder icon, they are not changed.




The windows folder icon is dynamic. Rather than changing itself from "image" to "image", it actually "deviants" itself with the file inside.


And I really do not want to turn off thumbnail view for folders......



1, How can I make the other 3 types of folder change as well? since the folder doesn't actually change if you look carefully. They just got overlaid by those thumbnails.

2, Where can I find information about how the folder icon works(or thumbnail works)? I am sure that it is not as simple as changing the icon entirely when a folder is made/modified.
