I'm sure many of the 3rd party icon makers are making icons and those are
available via search engines.
However, Vista does have a number of new .dll folders in :\Windows System32
that have new icons, and you have to try them one by one or else use one of
the icon extractors. I prefer to try them one by one and list them in
notepad or an email to myself.
I can extract any of them manually and I don't miss them if I check every
..dll, .exe and zip file and program folders on every possible drive and
directory and folder list including in and out of Windows. It's not a
quesiton of don't have to, it's a question of tapping every source for the
most icons and variety.
You can sub any icon that comes with Vista, and there are about 2500 or
more--or any icon that comes
with any downloaded 3rd party program or any MSFT program like Office.
And of course the web applying favicon.ico to a url is an endless source for
an icon collection.
There are all kinds of 3rd party free icon harvesters, but I much prefer
to do this manually either drawing from icons within Vista or you can make
an icon folder as well by simply creating a folder, then going to
urls and adding favicon.ico to the url after a / . Not every site will have
them. Sometimes you'll see the favicon at the upper left corner of the
window, but it won't drag to the desktop so you do a suspender number or
pull it from the top left extreme corner of the window and let it snap back
2-3 times and then you can pull it from that same location to the desktop.
Then you must rename the favicon and give it a h ome, i.e. you have to tuck
it into that favicons folder (call it anything you like) Icons or whatever
so that it will not revert back to a generic small "e" when you delete TIFs
or when you reboot.
