Windows 7: Icons for Music file types?

16 Jan 2010   #1

Icons for Music file types?

I want to change the default ICON for an MP3 file to make it display different from a WAV file when the two types of files are in the same folder?

In XP and Windows Vista we had a "File Types" tab, where you could "Change the ICON" for different file types. Can't find this in Windows 7?

As when I am converting WAV files into MP3's it makes it much easyer to see which ones are which by thier different file ICON shapes rather than them all being just that blue note one. I had changed my MP3 ones to the Orange Play triangle in the Blue circle from windows media player.
