Icons which are only visible when you select Show -> All files from the menu can easily be changed by updating envarc:sys/def_drawer.info.

Icons which are always visible even without Show All have to be changed individially.

I vaguely remember a program called UpdateDrawers which comes either with MagicWB or NewIcons. But this probably only works with either MagicWB or NewIcons, depending on where it comes from.

AppReplaceIcon from aminet. comes with normal and newicon specific version.

when you start it, it ask for your desired icon. then you will have an app-icon on desktop. just select some icons and drag&drop onto that "AppReplaceIcon" on desktop.
caution: it will change also icons of different type. so try with a single icon first. there is no UNDO function

NewIcons46 comes with the UpdateDrawers tool:
- Added UpdateDrawers, a new tool that will allow you to recursively
   replace all drawer icons within a given path.
