How can I add a new folder in the Map Editor



Hello everyone, I would like to know how can I add a new folder to the Map Designer on the right side. I would like to create a new folder where I would be able to put all my icons in it. I saw that topic talking about that feature, but no news since...

Here is the path where I actually need to put all icons to be able to use them in the Map Designer.

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\mapicons

That would be great if it is possible to create a new folder following the above path and probably modify an other file to see the folder appear in the Map Designer. I have the lastest version of PRTG installed (

Hello Snoobz,
we appreciate your contact.

When possible please keep the discussion within the original thread, please understand that it's still only possible to use the iconset7 and iconset8 folders for additional images as described here. We're aware that there's a wish to "take this feature further ahead" but there are no plans to implement this at the present time.

Best Regards,
