Create Icon files .ico

  Tony_B 02:36 21 May 2006

I want to turn some basic image files into icon files so that I can use them on my desktop.

Is windows capable of doing this or do I need to use a photo program. I have Paint Shop Pro 7 but can't see the .ico file extn in there.

Do Icons always have to be .ico files? or will .bmp files work.

Is there a free program available that will do this for me?

What are the properties of an .ico file?

Lots of questions I know, but I would like to learn a little more about this.

Try this click here open the file you have with this and then select file/save as choose icon from the drop down menu as the file type to save it as.
