    Is there a way to convert jpeg or bitmap files to icon files. I want to use icons on my favorites in IE.

    Here are a couple to consider - though they appear to be shareware so note the restrictions on use if quoted ie nag screens or limits on time to use, etc ...

    Great,

    But depending whether you decide to keep the prog. you use - it might pay to do this :

    Go Start > Run type MSCONFIG and click the Startup tab. If there is an entry for the icon prog make sure to untick it then it hopefully won't give you the nag screen every time you boot.



    Take Care,


    Richard.

    Just save a small (eg 80x80 pixels) image to bmp (bitmap).
    Then, when you "change icon" browse to this bmp file. That's all.
    No need for icon creator program!
