    Select the entry, right click, select properties. Then click on "Change Icon" and then "Browse" to the different "dll" files and you will find more icons than you will ever need.

    Have a look here . There are many more freeware and shareware programs available - Google "icon finder" or "find icons".

    Re: icons (IE 6)

    Rebel,

    What am I doing worng? I downloaded, extraxted and ran Icon Finder but it doesn't appear to find any icons except 1. That time I ran it from F: drive and told it to scan C: drive. Then I copied it to C: drive ran it again and still it only found 1 icon. The instructions are simple enough but it doesn't appear to work.

    Thanks.

    The problem with that program, is that it is looking for ICON files and not icons inside of the different DLL or EXE type of files, that may contain embedded icons.

    Check out http://www.mvps.org/serenitymacros/iconlist.html

    Re: icons (IE 6)

    Sorry about that. Dave is absolutely correct. There used to be quite a few freeware programs that would find icons in .exe's, .dll's, etc. but there are not many now. One which does work quite well (and is still free) can be found here . It involves a little work but it does find the buried icons.

    Rebel,

    Sorry about not having looked first. Do you know if Icon Digger works with XPP?

    Re: icons (IE 6)

    The top thread over on the FrontPage board suggests another program. I think the name was something like Axialis. If you visit soon, it should be easy to find. (No link ? I sure am lazy today. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>)

    I use Axiais (www.axialis.com), but it is a fairly high-end product (and not free) if you just want swap a few icons. I love it, but it might be overkill. PC Mag's IconJack32 (no longer freeware) was a great icon harvesting tool.

    Rebel,

    Thanks. I tried it and again it just sits there and does nothing. That's why I wondered if it worked on XPP.

    R2,

    Thanks. I did find it and saw that it was not free so I didn't download it.
