Windows doesn't recognize my folder full of .ico files
Hi, I'm new to the forums, so please forgive me if I'm not doing everything correctly.
I'm having trouble changing my shortcut icons. Specifically, I'm trying to change the icons for my Chrome application shorcuts saved in a folder on my system.
I found some icons using Icon Finder (Icon Search Engine | Iconfinder), and saved them in a folder in My Documents. All of the files are .ico files, formatted to the proper size, and are the only files in that folder. I then go through the normal process by going to the shortcut, right-clicking, hitting "properties", selecting "change icon", and then locating the folder and the file located within. However, every time I do, Windows displays a message that reads
"the file 'lfile location' contains no icons.
Choose an icon from the list or specify a different file."
I'm running Windows 7 Professional 32bit. Any help would be appreciated.

Good catch, I tried the actual download, and while it does download a file with the .ico extension, it does not display, and Irfanview says:
I did right click on the .ico choice, copied link address, pasted in url bar, chose to open, then was able to right click and save a valid .ico file. this is in Opera. IE was able to download the .ico no problem. Firefox also was able to save it no problem. What browser are you using Keith?
