Looking for a simple small windows program that will simply show correct icons for .apk's on my PC

I set a default .ico for all my apk's but something showing the correct .ico for apk's would be great.

Is there one available?

Thanks to anyone replying.

There's got to be something??? anyone?
I remember when I played around with a Nintendo DS I found some type of shell extension that would show .nds games icons...
Was really hoping this was out there for .apk's

Not anymore, i might have a solution for you
  1. first get the image you want to use as an icon and resize it to be EXACTLY 256x256 and in .ico format
  2. then click run in start menu and type regedit
  3. allow UAC if needed
  4. make backup of registry
  5. if you want to just change the icon to know what it is, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.apk
  6. if it isnt there, right click on the folder and create new key called .apk
  7. check if the (default) entry is blank, if so, then create a new key in the same place as .apk and call it something.Assoc.APK (not tested)
  8. in the new key, create a key called DefaultIcon, and in that create a REG_EXPAND_SZ and put the full path in quotes of the .ico file

tell me if it doesnt work and include screenshots
