    Hi
    I have changed the icons on folders I have on the desktop using jpgs and gifs and an icon converter. The IE explorer shortcuts I have, wont be changed this way. Is there any ideas out there.
    Using XP & IE7
    Cheers

    Are you trying to change the original IE icon that doesn't have the shortcut arrow? If so, you won't be able to change it. Instead, RIGHT click the IE icon and choose create shortcut. Now you can change the shortcut icon and delete the original from the desktop.

    Hi Rick.
    No, the shortcut has the arrow. When you look at the properties the tabs are " web document" and "general" The web document part seems to accept the new icon but the "general" doesn't. When you delete the shortcut it shows up in the recycle bin with the new icon.
