Default Change File Icon

I know how to change the Icon of the shortCut. I would like the logic behind how you change the Icon of a file. say if I wanted to make my .vbs file icon a big red "V".

Thanks alot,

Randy Dray

You can't chnage the icon of your own .vbs script with out chnageing evey other .vbs script icon. the reason been be cause that script is assigned a icon from the vbscript Interpreter.

and if you want to know the logic of how the .vbs gets it icon look under the Registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VBSFile\DefaultIcon
you see it has a value of %SystemRoot%\System32\WScript.exe,2
WScript.exe is the Interpreter and the 2 is the icon index the .vbs file is using.

ok on the other hand if you want to have your own icon for a .vbs file and if you know how to use Visual Basic 6 I suguest haveing a look at some code I made it does what you require.

Well it allows you to assign your own custom icon to a .vbs file. I made it bcause of a scripting lanuage I was makeing here the link

Add Icons to your scripts.

Other than that I can;t think of any other way to chnage a .vbs icon. hope that helps.

When ya dreams come true.
