Windows 7: A simple program to change icons

A simple program to change icons

Has anyone written a simple program to allow for changing program icons ion Windows 7? I set VLC as the default program for .iso files, and each one shows up at that stupid traffic cone. I want to choose a custom icon.

A custom icon for each iso? or to change the default icon that vlc sets the ico as?

Thanks,

Hello Qtrim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can use the tutorial below to manually change the icons used for file extensions. I have not tried the program Types (yellow TIP box in tutorial) in Windows 7 yet, but it may work to make it easier to do.

File Extension Type Icon - Change - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn
