Change USB Icon With NAME

How to change your USB Flash Drive Icon (Done with Windows XP but should work on All Windows Versions).

Step 1:

Go to Notepad (Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Notepad).
Type the following:

Step 2:


label=Your USB Name


Step 3:

  • Go to File --> Save As --> Name it autorun.inf and save it in the Root of the USB Drive
  • Now all you need is an Icon. Icons can be downloaded off the internet but if you have a picture you want to convert into an Icon (.ico), there are plenty of programs to do so.

Step 4:

When you get your Icon, move it to the Root of your USB Drive along with the Autorun file.

  • Unplug the drive and plug it back in and you should be able to see your custom icon.

(If unplugging the drive doesn't work, try restarting the computer)
