On most shortcuts, you right click, go to properties, and then click change icon. (In a folder, go the customization panel.) Now, locate where you saved the icons, and select the one you want. Done. You've probably figured this out by now, since it's been ages, but, here you go, just in-case.
Oh, I just found them in your page. Nice! I should drop the link here: zainadeel.deviantart.com/art/Q... Consider adding these and the Office ones in the description so that you don't get these questions all the time. Thanks again!
I've been using these forever and even tried my best to emulate the style for some of my missing icons here and realized I have yet to comment on them. Any tips on my expansion pack or template file that you wouldn't mind sharing would be off the chain, of course. I'm mostly adding development-related icons.
As you can see the Computer icon on desktop is changed, but when I drag it over the superbar to pin it, the icon shows is the default one, not the changed one. I have tried every possible way to change it but cant. Any idea why is it not changing ?
And by the way, look how elegant my laptop looks with your Blend 2.0. It is by far, the BEST theme for Windows 7 on DeviantArt. Perfect
try to make a shortcut of them.. the original .exe wont let u change its icon. I had the same problem with the control panel.
the other thing is to first put it in the taskbar.. then rightclick go to properties and change icon.. it wont show the change.. but after a few reboots u will see it will start using the selected Icon.
Yes, sir . . its the shortcut of Computer, on my desktop (I removed the shortcut arrows on all icons).
And when you put it in the taskbar, right-clicking dont show properties, only Unpin from taskbar and program start menu. I tried everything, dragging it to start menu, changing icon again. Rebooted around 10 times. Tried almost everything.
