Info on personalising icons

  Newuser2 15:15 12 Mar 2005

I would like to personalise the icons on my desktop and the folders in them. I sure there was an article in PCA a while back, but I can't find it.
Any help much appreciated.

Right click on the folder, properties/customise/change icon.

This works for xp.

I have 26 zip files of Icons A to Z. If you want to try them email me via the envelope and I will send them to you (perhaps a few at a time)

If you have Irfan view,
click here
,you can save pictures as a .ico and use them as icons.

You can use StyleXP or Icon Packager to change the icons (click here for StyleXP and click here for Icon Packager)

and use IconDeveloper (click here) to create the icons (or use InfranView... your choice...)

I wouldn't recommend Icon Packager; I had to use System Restore (brilliant lifesaving invention!) to undo the damage it did to my OS.
