    Icons for my drives

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> All

    Anyone has found any cute icons to display in Windows XP Explorer? I ask because I am so in love with these smiles we have on these longes.

    I have 2 Zip Drives, one ATAPI internal, and one Parallel.

    I have a CD-RW and a DVD Drive

    and all of these look alike specially when there is no disk inserted.

    I would like to find some icons that are so distinct I can tell which is which in a snap jiffy.

    Thanks

    Re: Icons for my drives

    Hi Wassim--

    I'm not sure in which view in WE you mean, but here is one way to draw on 100's of free icons within XP--of course the Icon Design software available all over the web like Microangelo can do this but I'm talking free icons that will stick within XP. This idea came to me from Woody Leonhard's XP for Dummies p. 246: (and not in many other books) .

    Please see Microsoft Icons Disappear in the Win 2000 Thread Here. My list of places to get icons in Win 2K or Win XP is growing,--I have around 45 locations on it, and if you want I'll mail it to you. It works in WE--I already tried it before posting. You can also draw from icons from Downloaded programs as well this way by following the path I laid out in the linked thread and
    hitting "browse" and clicking on your download file if you save the downloaded folders and their icons.

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> for the Tips Defrag

    Ok yes I would love to see these 45 places where one can get icons.

    Do you think I can use some of them for Toolbar buttons in VB, or MS-Office applications?

    Let me know.
