About this mod

After recently spending hours creating icons and finding backgrounds, I decided to put my effort to good use and allow others to use the resources I made in order to turn their own desktop into a brand-new Pip-Boy 3000.

NOTICE: Description has been updated. New icons are coming soon.

Ever wanted to swap that boring old desktop for a Pip-Boy? If so, look no further.

Accomplishing this is a lot easier than it looks. When I was customizing my own desktop, I found easy-to-configure icons online and set the color of every custom icon I downloaded to the same hex code. I then had to convert every icon from .png to .ico. Finally, I went into the properties settings of each shortcut and manually set each of them to their new icon.

However, the above process took a large amount of time to accomplish (especially since some of the icons, such as Undertale and Overwatch, had to be found and edited with other sources). Since I knew that other people would likely be interested in customizing their desktop the same way I did, I decided to upload the icons and backgrounds I made/used to reddit and the Nexus in order to save everyone time.

Base “Mod” Requirements
Except for a computer that runs Windows 10 (no Android or Apple products are currently supported), there are no requirements! Simply follow the installation instructions.

Installation Instructions
All of the below instructions require that you extract the files I included to a convenient spot. To extract the files, open the .zip folder and drag and drop all of the contents somewhere easy to find. Once you’ve done this, follow the instructions below to complete any steps that you don’t already know how to accomplish.

Changing Desktop Wallpaper
  • Right-click anywhere on your desktop and click Personalize at the bottom of the drop-down menu.
  • The Background tab should be selected in the new Settings window.
  • Click Browse under Choose your picture. Find the location of the files you extracted and select the desktop wallpaper you want.

Changing Lock Screen
  • Repeat the first step from above if the Settings window is not already open.
  • Find the Lock screen tab on the left side of the window and select it.
  • Repeat the last step from above and select the lock screen you want.

Changing Desktop Icons
  • Right-click on the icon you want to change and click Properties at the bottom of the drop-down menu.
  • The Shortcut tab should be selected in the new Properties window.

Note: If the Shortcut tab does not exist, the Web Document tab should be selected. If this is not the case either, the icon may need to be changed in Settings. If so, skip the below two steps and follow the instructions below them.

  • At the bottom of the Shortcut tab, click Change Icon.
  • Click Browse near the top right. Find the location of the files you extracted and select the icon you want.

If the icon can’t be changed using the above instructions, then the next step to try is to change the icon under Settings. To do this:
 
  • Right-click anywhere on your desktop and click Personalize at the bottom of the drop-down menu.
  • Find the Themes tab on the left side of the window and select it.
  • On the right side of the Themes tab, select Desktop icon settings under Related settings.
  • Select the icon you want to change and click Change Icon.
  • Click Browse near the top right. Find the location of the files you extracted and select the icon you want.
