Unfortunately i cant help you with the resolution but the rest i can

Folders and file types-

Find the Icons you want create a folder for them where you will not move or delete it

Right click the folder/file select set icon and drag the desired icon

If you wish to switch the icon up for all file types of the sort there is three options in the window that pops up select only for the type /special/

As for icewm Go to dotpups in your start menu select dotpup package installer from setup navigate to windows managers and from then on its pretty self explanatory after so install the menu from the same place for 1.0.6

For themes navigate the dotpup downloader to icewm themes select the desired theme install and choose it from your start menu in themes

You'll need to update your icewm menu for the version of puppy you're using.

You can run the dotpup-downloader manually with the following command /usr/local/Dotpup-downloader-mu05/start-downloader.
After that you can search for "icewm menu" without the quotes.
