Windows 7: change icon in explorer

11 Jun 2009   #1

change icon in explorer

I installed notepad++ and wish to change the icon since it has an ugly, 1995 icon to it for some reason. It looks ugly in explorer when viewing a list of registered file type extensions to notepad such as txt.

How can I do this?
