    There may be a way, but it's a little complicated and may not work. It involves editing some files and therefore could possibly cause problems with your program (although it is unlikely) and may or may not void your warranty if you have one for Office, but I don't know for sure because I can't be bothered by that. First, what version of Microsoft Office are you using? Second, is your computer 32 bit (x86) or 64 bit (x64)?

    Try this tutorial from our sister site (sevenforums.com):

    File Extension Icon - Change Default Icon - Windows 7 Forums

    The process is exactly the same for Vista, and FileTypesMan is compatible with Vista, so you're all good to go

    Use option 1

    Oh nice! that's a lot better than my idea. I was gonna see if you could use ResourceHacker to mess with the pic in the .exe file for word. So yes, Clair1 you should follow Tom's idea. You can safely ignore all my warnings I gave about the possible problems if you follow that idea.

    Now that's a great program! Really useful

    When I first saw the thread title that was exactly what I thought, but I couldn't believe there wasn't an easier way of doing it
