Windows 11 ─ how to change default UAC shield icon

+1
−0

I want to manage the customization of the small icon in the right of any shortcut started with admin privilegies

I already know how to change the arrow in shortcut:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer new key: Shell Icons new string value: 29 value data: new icon path

and I found in C:\WINDOWS\System32\imageres.dll that shield icon numbered 73, so I tryed the same method in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer Key (already created): Shell Icons new string value: 73 value data: new icon path

but doesent work ... any suggestion?

I already tryed to rebuild the icons cache

additional informations: if I in Ueli use the same icons from the desktop Ueli not show the UAC shield icon from my shortcuts

so... since in Ueli dont show the UAC shield icon, I think this shield icon is setted in explorer.exe process, probable in some string on the registry, but wich?
