    How do I change text icons

    Vista Home Edition
    New user [ unfamiliar with this OS ]

    All text files open with a program called Metapad.
    This is how I want them to.
    My question is how do I change all the txt icons
    in my folders to match
    that of Met pad ?

    Any help or advice appreciated...
