It's really bothering me, second In XP you use to be able to change file type extension icons, now you cant

Anyone know how you can, and don't point me to Vista tuts because they won't work.

Hello Mitchell,

This can show you how to change the icons for file extension types. It is the same procedure in Windows 7.
