How to make and use custom icons for folders in Windows 10?

Can I make custom icons in Windows 10? For example, my daughter takes a lot of photos of our cats, can I take a cat image and use it for the folder icon?
You'll need to convert the image you want used to an .ico format. You can convert the file online at http://convertico.com/
I've read that Windows10 accepts other file formats such as jpg or png as icons, but haven't tried it my self yet (give it a shot).
After you have the picture you want to use, right click on the folder you want to change the icon on. Select Properties, click the Customize tab and click the change icon button under the Folder icons section.
