any help on this one. I have shortcut creator and for some reason when i point it to the Lnk file then to the ico file it just makes a duplicate and renames the old .bak. the icons don't change?

I tried the sk iconmaker and it won't show any of my ico files in the folder.

how can you change icons?

Well, You could do it manually. To change the icon of all shortcuts download a registry editor (PHM RegEdit is free and great), Then goto HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\inkfile\defaulticon.Edit the string value "default" to the path to the icon you whant all shortcuts to have. The path must lead to a exe, dll or ico file.

DOWNLOAD rViwer TO MANAGE ICON IN dll FILES
