Icons are one of the main ways we identify programs and documents but they can often be bland and boring especially those default ones assigned by Windows.

One great way to personalise your desktop is to customise your icons. You can use IconChanger to change personal file icons by assigning an icon of your choice to each and every file on your computer. To use it, select the file you wish to personalize and right click it with your mouse. If Icon Changer can change its icon, you will see the Change Icon symbol but bear in mind that not all icons can be changed. You can assign or reset icons for multiple objects at once and to set or reset an icon for a file type, you can launch Icon Changer for any file of the desired type. In the IconPane you will see the content of the file containing the icon used for the current object. IconChanger allows you to automatically search for icons contained in various executable files and DLLs saved on your hard drive. Once you've selected the icon you consider the most suitable, press the "Set" button and you're all changed! Unfortunately, not every icon you select can be changed and in the end, it often becomes more tedious changing the hundreds of icons on your PC than just leaving them as they are.

If you love to personalise your PC and have the time to change your icons, IconChanger is an easy to use and fun program.

Icon Changer is an application that makes changing icons on the desktop fun and easy.

It's a hassle-free way to personalize your desktop without submerging yourself into reading books about advanced computing. Simply click the icon you want to change, point at the one you like and that's all.
