    Surprised/Amazed

    i really dont know where this thread should go so i assumed it should go in softwareworld. okay, to install themes/visual styles i use stylexp. but what do i use (or do) to install .ico files? i just downloaded this pack from deviantart but i don't know how to install them (or change my current icons to the ones i downloaded), here's the link to the info for the icons i downloaded:

    Download the file to C:\Windows\Resources\Icons.

    Then open Style XP and choose which way you want to access them.

    1. Click on the 'Icons' button and choose 'Search Paths' and tell Style XP where to find them. (The place you downloaded them)^

    2. Click on the 'Icons' button and select 'Add an Icon Set...' and again, browse for the file

    Let me know if you need a specific one, I've got tons of icons.

    And don't forget these.

    Changing them individually you mean?

    Yeah, StyleXP makes it pretty easy. So does ObjectDock. I use a combo of the two.

    icon packager works great for the icons! I'd suggest using that program...it's made specifically for changing icons. stylexp messed up my explorer icons after trying its icon changer.

    Yeah, I'm not really on the Style XP bandwagon either, but it has its uses. I use ObjectDock to manage my icons and make most of my own with Photoshop and Axialis Icon Workshop 5.0.
