View Full Version : Change Icon Options

If I want to change Links or Favourite file Icons, the Right click properties Icon box presents me with no more than 4 lousy options.
1. Is there a free source of a greater range of such icons and
2 if so could you please walk me through the procedure to get them after I've downloaded them into the Icon Box. thanks Willbry

I did a quick search on Google for "IE favorite icons" and came up with many links to sites that explain all about them and also some sources for icons. This page (http://www.fortunecity.com/skyscraper/millenit/1716/iconsafe/zdfan.html) has a good explanation of how to go about it.

You're in luck! I just received a link to this page (http://www.website-designs.com/icon01.htm) yesterday that has a bunch of icons for Links.

My Internet Tip had this to say about it:

Changing Link Icons in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6

If you use the Links bar in IE 6, you may like to change
the icons to something more meaningful--or more attractive.
To do this, right-click the link you want to change and
choose Properties. When the dialog opens, click Change
Icon. Now, click Browse and locate a suitable new icon.

We keep a special Icon folder for our collection of icons
and usually choose a new icon from this folder.You'll find
some free to use icons at the above link.

Have fun. :-)

check out Virtual Plastic (http://www.virtualplastic.org/) for modding more than icons!
