    I have several folders on my HOME screen where I put shortcuts to apps. They all look the same, very boring. Can I change the icons for them? I have Folder Organizer I loaded specifically for this purpose and cannot make it work. I would rather not delete the folder and shortcuts and start over if possible.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but to be sure I'm clear I want to change the folder icon not the app icon.

    Smart shortcut groups apps, bookmarks and more into customizable desktop folders. Idk how to change the icon for a folder that is made through long pressing desktop, but would like to if anyone knows how.

    If you're using a launcher like ADW or LauncherPro you can hide the label under the app.

    Thank you so much for this.
    When I'm using Launcher Pro, is there a way to change the size of the icons ? The ones at the bottom are way too small
