Can anyone recommend an app that lets you select various picture files and use them as shortcut icons in Windows 7?

Icons are so last century now I don't have any I use the new quick launch much tidier. Oh and no I don't know of any apps that will do that

Yeah I agree, but it's for a media centre PC connected to a Bravia TV - I need icons that I can scale up for a large display.

Time to look at XBMC again I think. . . . :D

And what does quick launch have? icons.
Icons are a GUI feature, no icons, no GUI, no GUI - must be DOS.

Open the Picture in Paint, then save as .bmp.

Then change the shortcut icon, it will be changed to what ever the picture is.
