NOTE: This guide applies to all versions of Windows, including Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
Geek or not, there is a time when you become bored with the standard icon used by your USB memory stick or your external hard disk drive. Each time you plug it into a new computer, the same boring icon and name are displayed? What about changing them to something fun and cool? What about using a Mario inspired name and icon? It is entirely possible and in this tutorial, we will show you how to do it.
Step 1. Find a cool icon and name for the removable drive
First, you need a cool icon (a file with the extension .ico ) and a good name to use for your geeky memory stick. I wanted a memory stick inspired by Mario games and I made my memory stick loo
Step 2. Create an autorun.inf file on the root of the removable drive
Autorun.inf is a text file used by the AutoRun and AutoPlay components of Windows operating systems. This simple file describes the AutoRun behavior of the drive on which it’s found. In order to work, autorun.inf must be located in the root directory of the drive.
Let’s start by creating a new text file. For now, you can create it anywhere on your computer, as we will move it on the memory stick later. I, for instance, created the text file on my Desktop, and so can you
Then, rename the text file to autorun.inf and confirm that you are OK to change its file name extension. Note that if you don’t already have Windows/File Explorer set to display file extensions, you must enable this option before renaming the text file. If you don’t know how to do that, this tutorial will help: How to use the View tab in File Explorer.
You will notice that once renamed, the icon of the file changes
Now, copy the autorun.inf and the icon file to the removable drive. Make sure that the autorun.inf file is placed in the root of the removable drive. While we recommend that you place the icon file in the root of the removable drive also, you should know that you can place it in any folder you want to, as long as it’s on that drive.
Open autorun.inf in your favorite text editor and enter the following lines:
Last but not least, you might want to set the properties of the icon file and autorun.inf so that they are hidden and not displayed when you open the contents of the drive.
This way, you make sure that they will never be deleted by accident, and that your removable drive will keep on looking gorgeous. :)
I discovered this fun dilemma while browsing the new discussions on the Super User community. You can find the discussion about this geeky trick here: How do you customize the icon on a USB stick?. The awesome part about the procedure above is that it works on all types of removable media. You can use the same steps on USB memory sticks, external hard disk drives or even CDs/DVDs or Blu-ray discs you create.
