Great job and thanks a million!
I've been looking for ways to change the icons without having to use Iconpackager or On Display and I finally found them here.
Your welcome Quackie, and welcome to Vista Forums. I understand. I do not like using 3rd party programs for something that I can do within Vista if I'm able to either.
exactly my point.
just a quick question. say i got a file .hdmov. so i scroll to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.hdmov and in there it tells me the value for (Default) is hdmov_auto_file.
however when i scrolled to hdmov_auto_file, there isn't any DefaultIcon folder when i expanded hdmov_auto_file. the only thing in it was just shell. any ways to work around this?
I suppose as just a test, you could right click on hdmov_auto_file and click on New and Key. Type DefaultIcon and press Enter. Next add the icon path as described here to see if it works. If it doesn't, then you just right click on the DefaultIcon and click on Delete and Yes to approve.
Hope it works for you.
I love your tutorials, Brink. They are all so useful but I have a question.
I'd like to change the 'unknown' file icon in vista, like either when a file has no extension or when it is not assosiated with any program.
Help would be most appreciated
Hi LordChen, and welcome to Vista Forums.
You would go to the the folder key Unknown in step 6 to change it's icon.
Hope this helps,
I am trying to change the default icon for .css files. I want the icon that dreamweaver uses, but want to open .css files with notepad++. Setting the file association to notepad++ changes the icon, so I can't get the right one.
I tried using DefaultIcon and changing the Progid, but it still won't work.
