    I know this sounds like a minor thing but want to know if I can change it. I installed classic shell in Win8.1 and right-clicked on My Documents to try to copy to put the My Documents icon on the desktop. Well, the sunflower picture is gone. Anyone know how to put it back?

    I can't tell if he means changing a shortcut or folder icon, or if it's adding the Documents folder to the desktop through the "desktop icons" setting........but what about the sunflower? Do you mean your profile picture?

    Well, when you click on start, you usually see like a picture of a sunflower above "Documents, Pictures, Music"... Now it's like a white symbol of a man with a black background. I'd like to change it back.
