Changing the Default File Type Icon

It is pretty easy to change the default icon for any file type. The hardest part will be choosing the icon you want to use.

To change the default file type icon do the following:
  • Open the Windows Explorer or the My Computer icon in the Start menu.
  • From the Tools menu, select 'Folder Options...'
  • Click on the File Types tab, this will display a list of all of the file extensions installed on your computer.
  • From the list select the extension for which you want to change the icon, then press the Advanced button.
  • Press the 'Change Icon...' button.
  • From the new dialog that displayed, select the icon you want to use or press the Browse... button to select a file that has an icon that you want to use.
  • Press the OK buttons to save your changes.
