You can experience the new icon of the Windows 10 file manager without upgrading the system in a few simple steps

The Windows 10 21H2 feature update codenamed Sun Valley is about to usher in a major visual upgrade, and many user interfaces and system applications will further deploy the Fluent Design design language. In the latest preview version, Microsoft has upgraded the icons for multiple options in the file manager. If you also want to upgrade these icons without upgrading the existing system, here is a safe and simple way.

The good-hearted people of MSFTNext have extracted the icons from Shell32 and Imageres and made them available to everyone to download, so you can now easily download these icons and use them to customize your folder. Not all applications and folders can have alternate icons, but shortcuts can be easily changed.
