File Icons in Widows Vista
Hi all ...

Did not see a post on this on a quick scan of the newsgroup, but was
wondering if there is away to change the file icon in Windows Explorer under
Vista. From what I have seen in some blogs and different sites, it might
require a hack of the registry. I was wondering if there was a 'cleaner' way
of modifying a file icon to make it easier to distinguish between different
files (of unknown types)

[for instance, if I create a new .txt file in Explorer, I get an icon that
looks like a page. If I create a html file (same way, but renaming it to
..html) it uses a similar icon and no way to change it ...

Any sharp and bright ideas ?

Thanx

Thanks so much

Hi R2D2,

This tutorial may help you. The key is to make shortcuts of the file
first. You might also look at the related links for additional
customizing ideas.
