    If you mean the icon seen in Windows Explorer then no you can't easily change it. That is meant to show you the application which is used by default to open the file. If you mean something different then please clarify - a picture would be good.

    Sportsman:

    You will need to have an icon (ICO) file to use in any case. That part of the process is easy.

    You may already have the icon, but in case you don't:

    1. Find a picture that you want to use for the icon -- in your case, your "source symbol".
    2. Open it in Paint.
    3. Save it in format BMP, but specify ICO as the file extension. (e.g. mypicture.ico)
    4. You can now use it as an icon.

    In fact, I have a folder on my computer called C:\ICONS. I keep all of the icons I have made in this folder. It is really easy to keep track of them and to use them as desired.

    I often make an icon for each one of the websites I regularly visit, and I then use that icon in my shortcut for that website.

    When the screen shot you wish to post is on your screen, tap the Prt Sc key. Then open Paint and choose Paste. This will put the screen shot into Paint. At this point you can crop the area of your screen shot to further emphasize the shot you wish to show. Once done, close Paint and choose to save the screen shot at a place of your choosing (desktop for example) and name it something appropriate.

    Next use the Symbol.png and follow the prompts to post the screen shot in your post.

    I would guess the website changed their graphics and that is why the symbol changed in your case. The symbol does not come from Adobe on that web site, it comes from the web site developers.

    Yes, the snippet tool will work as well. Try saving the file from Paint as a jpg rather than a bitmap. The jpg image will be much more compressed. When you close Paint and it offers to save the file, the drop down list gives you several alternatives. I have found the jpg works best for these screen shots.

    If you're trying to create an icon file, save it in bitmap format, but use .ico as the file extension rather than .bmp.

    Am I misunderstanding the question?
