    Howto Make Desktop Items?

    I was wondering if it was possible to make my own icons for things on my desktop. If there is a way then what is it. I would be very thankful if someone informed me of how to do this or where I could find out how to do this. Thanks to repliers in advance

    NO NO NO NO... thats not what I meant. Thank you for trying, but you misunderstood my question. I was asking how I could make my own, not use the ones that the computer gives me.

    Actually, you can make them with paint. Make a 256 color bitmap that's 32x32 or 16x16 pixels and save it as a .ico file.

    I used to play around in Microangelo, but after I found IconWorkshop, there's no way I'm going back. You should check it out. It's easy to use and packed full of features. You can also convert Mac icons to XP format, which really rocks.
