Want to change the Win Live Mail

    I tried Right click on a Desktop icon and/or a program shortcut on the Start
    menu, Properties, Change icon.

    But I never found the the location of available icons after clicking on the
    'Browse'
    button.

    Took me to System 32 folder but these old eyes could not see where the
    'icons'
    where stored.

    Would some kind person set me straight please?

    Actually, almost any DLL file has icons embedded, so scout around!
    For instance, especially in Windows\System32 you may find
    BsLangInDepRes.dll, which got installed from a Bluetooth app.
    If you use that file, you will have a nice selection of Bluetooth icons
    to use for your folder(s).

    There are also gobs of icon files available free for download that have
    icons for specific uses, such as medical, game, file, disk, etc.
    They are usually stored in a DLL to keep them organized.
    There are also individual programs that can manipulate the DLLs
    in many ways. Starting with Vista (I believe), the OS's allow you to use
    much higher resolution icons.
    There may even be animated icons available, but I haven't seen any, yet.

    For my Windows Live Mail which I have pinned to the taskbar, there is a shortcut in:

    C:/Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

    (You would, of course, need to replace [User Name] with something appropriate for your computer)

    I have changed the icon of that shortcut to the stamped addressed envelope icon in:

    %SystemRoot%\System32\shell32.dll

    A picture's worth a thousand words, but if you only need a four-letter-word, is that too much
    information? The wrong picture is worth three letters and a couple punctuation marks-- Huh?!

    I was trying to find moricons.dll but it's not on my Win7 box, I think it was an
    XP thing. Anyway, while Googling icons, dlls etc. I came across this website:
    http://www.win7dll.info/
    It lists all the Win7 dlls and any images etc. that they contain.
    Essential geeky stuff!

    That's OK. I believed you anyway for a minute, but I searched with
    Super Finder XT (without the 'e'!) & found it.

    And thanks for the link. I'm going there as we speak...

    I don't text, so I can't get the D/L code. That's OK. There are already
    too many icons :)
