Windows 7: Changing icon of Microsoft Office apps

03 Apr 2010   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
Changing icon of Microsoft Office apps


I've been messing around with Restorator 2007 to change the icons of common programs that I use (such as firefox, mpc etc...) and also the Shell32.dll and Imageres.dll so that they're all looking consistant, however, I cannot get Microsoft Word/Excel/PowerPoint to change. I go through the same procedure as described in the other thread, but when I start the program the icon on the taskbar is the same default Word icon as before. The only thing it changes is the appearance of the icon in explorer.

How come? Is there another .dll file somewhere that Word is using?

By the way - I'm using the "Never combine" option on my taskbar (so that the programs start like in XP) - if that makes any difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
