    I run Xp SP2
    I have changed the URL shortcut icon byway of "folder options" and "file types " as trying via the properties of the URL shortcut file doesn't work. Of course changing the icon that way means they are all the same. Please tell me that all these clever programming people have sorted this, or am I just thick. Any ideas?

    Hi Dan O
    Did what you suggested but the artical directions are a little confusing. Not sure what to name the new folder in regedit? default icon or Internet shortcut. When I double click on default( on the right) it asks for new data string and not options for icon change.
