Well, the user could choose then what he prefers - but would lose all special icons if he set an icon for the <Default> view mode. But it would be his decision...

Dear Christian, as I can see, the ideal solution would be a changeable icon priority order, defined for each view mode.

It's not that simple - in the above example, the priority would change even by directory...

Dear Christian, actually for me when visually navigating the tabs icon means actually nothing - it only irritating the eye on a small tabs. Color is the key. But ok, if people

What that icon marks?

If it marks on what place are you - helping the folder names and path text, than it must change with the fs icon.

If it marks the tab in a cluttered tab environment, then it must stay as the user define

So there is only two options
1.Changing icons for path marking
2.Persistent user icons for tab marking

You can not implement the complex ranking, just realize these two concepts

As the icon also serves as an indicator for which view mode is set it's absolutely confusing if it's overwritten by a folder-specific icon.
For me the view mode icon should always have priority. No option required. Please at least change the default.

Sorry but I see that differently - if I take the efford to set a specific icon for a folder, I want to see that icon and not the icon of the view mode which is valid for 100s of other folders. But you can now decide for yourself with the "Priority" checkmark.

I will try disabling all the other none view mode related icons and see if it works for me.

Why? Just check the "Priority" checkbox for each view mode you have defined.

I just wanna find out if the tab header icon is really just a view mode indicator for me or also serves for orientation purposes only. It's a test.

In my case I have never seen icons in my tabs:

In 'folder tab icons' all checkboxes are checked.

There are many ways to set a Folder Tab icons - see: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/tabicons.png

But for folders that does not fall under any of the 5 first rules in the "Icons on folder tabs" dialog, you have to use a view mode - as you can see I have done for Archives (A-rule), Search results (S-rule), Shares (U-rule) and for plain folders (L-rule) (Auto-switch rules in that order)

You should at least get icons in the root of the drive, e.g. in c:\

Sorry. I get it now. I imagined that any folder of c: (for example 'c:\test') will have the icon of c: if no other 'custom' icon is defined.
I other words, I thought that c: icon will 'propagate' to all folders of c: (unless custom icon defined for those folders).

No, tabs only show icons when they differ from the default folder icon, e.g.
- the folder already has a special icon, e.g. under c:\users\yourusername there are several
- drives and virtual folders usually have one
- you defined one via Alt+Enter
- you defined one via view mode
