Windows 7: I've been stuck trying to find...

Hi! tpod, welcome to W7F

This may be relevant. I searched my gateway, and found this file.
See path in first attachment.

Then opened the "changethecomputericon" folder, and found the icon. I haven't found the icon for the cow skin though.

You would have to search for HP folders, and when the icons for the files stop building check to see if you do have one of these:


In lieu of that you could install an icon extractor to scrub your files to find it. This one has a good rating from Cnet:IcoFX - The Free Icon Editor

It's main job is editing, but it will extract 32bit icons, and tell you the location.
If extractors can't find them they usually don't exist.

???? Why not just search for an icon on the net?

BTW how did you lose it?
I didn't loose it, I just want to find it. and no, that doesn't work either. I tried multiple search engines to find the picture but I couldn't.

Yes that is the default location for those pictures.... however his answer is that it's not there. Not surprising since It's not a "standard" Microsoft icon/picture.

thank you, it helped but I still couldn't find the picture I was looking for.
Any, good luck on your search tpod.
Strange though, for the picture I'm looking for, there is one more that shows up on the default gallery choosing on the nxt row after it, but it doesn't show in that folder either yet it should be a "standard" Micosoft icon/picture...

@Anak: umm there may be a problem since my computer hold both 32bit and 64bit items. and I'm starting to think that the image may be a 64 bit type. I evn tried looking up icons in the search but I didn't get anything.

If you search _ 64 bit icon extractors _ you can find them, but they mostly look like share/trialware.

yes, I have. I don't have a OEM folder in my computer.

And no offence, but as far as I can tell, none of you use an HP laptop...

No offense taken........

Its gotta be there somewhere.

If your machine is displaying it, there has to be a file.

Check the bottom of TheSchaft's post #9 here:
How to change Recycle Bin Desktop Icon

There is a link for a little utility (free) called Icon viewer Download IconViewer, but be sure to read up on it here: About IconViewer

I may have missed it, but have you un-hidden all your folders, and files?
Not sure if iconviewer can check hidden folders/files.
