Update the Days-To-Show-New-Icon in SharePoint

If for whatever reason you would like to update the display time of the SharePoint !NEW icon when you upload a new document library on SharePoint, you can do this by using the STSADM.exe tool.

On your SharePoint Server browse to:
c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\webserver extentions\12\bin  directory

Once there run this command:
stsadm.exe -o setproperty -pn days-to-show-new-icon -pv [number_of_days] -url [servername]

By default the !NEW icon is set for 2 days, if you would like to set it for longer just specify how long in the [number_of_days] attribute, if you don’t want to see the icon at all just put (zer0).
