    I use shortcuts to easily get to some of my personal files on Word and Excel. :D

    On XP Pro, you used to be able to right click on the desktop icon and there was a "change icon" button that had a target of system32.dll (I think) or you could browse to "moricons.dll". (y)

    Although this feature is still available on Program icons, it has disappeared from the personalized shortcut icons - I wonder why? :eek:
