Today, I would like to share that I found a way for CustomizerGod to work with Windows 10 Version 1903! So, here it goes:
Do note that all icon files (imageres.dll, shell32.dll, etc.) have been relocated to the folder C:\Windows\SystemResources, and they have a new extension, viz. imageres.dll.mun, shell32.dll.mun, etc.
The version of CustomizerGod that we all have at the moment is not able to work with .mun extensions and therefore, it is unable to create a backup of the .mun file by itself (we'll just have to wait for Kishan to release the updated version).
Therefore, all you need to do is to manually create a backup of the file containing the icons you want to change. For example, if you want to change the icons in imageres.dll.mun (which is basically CustomizerGod's default working file), then you copy imageres.dll.mun and save it to your Desktop.
Then, go to your Desktop and rename the file you just copied to imageres.dll.mun.backup.
Next, on your File Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows and look for the folder SystemResources (do not open it). Take ownership of the folder using your username (NOTE: I usually return the ownership back to the original owner once I have given myself full control in order not to mess things up on my computer). If you do not know how to do that, just google. There are lots of tutorials on how to achieve that.
Once you have full control of the SystemResources folder, copy the backup file you renamed in 4 above from your Desktop (in this case, the imageres.dll.mun.backup file) and paste it into the C:\Windows\SystemResources folder. And Bob's your uncle!
Launch CustomizerGod as you normally would, use the menu to open the imageres.dll.mun file (not the backup file!). On the left column, scroll down to highlight the icons section and you'll see the familiar ugly and flat Windows 10 icons that we just love to change. Let the customization begin!
I hope you find the above helpful, I'm just excited that I can still use CustomizerGod with Windows 10 Version 1903. This is my Control Panel:
Have a good day, All!
I don't know if this information will be helpful to you or not but I thought I'll share it with you anyway. As I was playing around on my Windows 10 laptop, this is what I found:
1. Using Resource Hacker and 7-Zip File Manager, I was not able to find the Icons folder in the Resource folder for imageres.dll and shell32.dll. Both software cannot read it.
2. However, the location path of the icons (any Windows 10 icons) still points to the imageres.dll and the shell32.dll files.
3. Using Icons Viewer software, I was able to see the icons in both imageres.dll as well as shell32.dll. NOTE: Clicking the Icons tab in Properties windows for the first time, you'll notice that it says "Adding icons", so I'm not exactly sure if the icons in both the dll files have been set to invisible or something or they have actually been relocated elsewhere.
I hope the above is useful to you because I am sincerely hoping, wishing and waiting for a CustomizerGod update for Windows 10 Version 1903. It's so annoying that CustomizerGod no longer works on 1903.
I don't suppose you know how I can change the Control Panel (Category View) applet icons, do you (the icons in the image below):
Hope to hear from you soon.
I currently don't have Windows installed but when I do, I'll make sure to update CustomizerGod.
I tried following your tutorial, but it doesn't work for me. When I try to copy the backup files to SystemResources, it still doesn't allow me to do it. I've followed several tutorial for taking ownership of a folder, and despite doing things correctly, I still can't copy the files to SystemResources. I'm able to edit the dll files on CustomizerGod though, but even though I change them, I see no change outside of the program. Damn Microsoft. I only wanted to change my volume icon. :(
It is no use customising the dll files because the new version of Windows 10 uses icons stored in the dll.mun files. You have to take ownership of the SystemResources folder first, then give yourself Full Control, and OK or Apply it. Then only return ownership to the previous owner. Only after that will you be able to paste the backup file into the SystemResources folder. Otherwise, the system will prevent you from doing anything.
I've no immediate plans but I may update it in the future to make it compatible with the latest Windows build.
