Windows 7: Where to find Icons of various applications?

Where to find Icons of various applications?

I have been looking around, playing with programs like IcoFX and Quck Any2Ico to customize with Rainmeter.

I have found majority of the icons I'm looking for from:


and many others from their dll's and exe files.

However, I haven't been able to locate the one for Device Manager.

Using these icon extractor may be helpful, but I'm unable to extract a clean, clear image of it.

A search on Google Image will have that icon, but it'll also have the Run As Admin icon attached to it.

Use IcoFX to look inside c:\windows\system32\devmgr.dll. If I'm understanding what you're looking for, it appears to be the fifth icon there.

That's close to what I'm looking for. I was able to extract the shortcut version of Device Manager; but it's not the main source.

The attached below is 48x48.

When enlarged to something like 128x128 or 256x256, it'll appear very blurry.

Nevermind, I forgot & used Win10 to browse to that location (instead of my laptop).

Interestingly, the icons are different for Win10 & Win7.

Thank you very much!

Any and All Applications Icons not showing up.
I can provide a screen shot ~ should be below. This problem started farther back than I can remember, I just booted this PC up one morning and all of my icons were default white pages. Any help and support would be much appreciated. Image added as attachment due to size.

Making running applications in the taskbar icons
Hey, I'm trying to save a bit of real estate... I have 3 apps that I always run pinned to the taskbar. That works well and good. However, one of them, I'd rather remain just the icon (as it displays when the program is not running; ie, getting rid of the text)... is there a way to do this? ...
