    to change office icons u need a program like Microangelo 5, most other icons u are able to change, but not MS stuff unless u have third party software.

    You can also right click your desktop-->new shorcut-->point to office apps of choice-->you can now change the icons. Should work.

    I start Microangelo librarian, then open the file "Microsoft Excel.ink". Then, i see a lot of icon, i right click on the one i want to change and choose replace. I browse to the icon i want and then i click open. I choose save as and it tell me that the file cannot be opened, the file may be READ ONLY or locked. But is the icon file read only or the .ink file read only??

    do am i doing right?

    no,

    right click the icon on your desktop or wherever choose appearence there, don't have to start microangelo to do that.

    I found how. I went to C:>Windows>Installer>{9028040C-6000-11D3-8CFE-0050048383C9}> (replace > by backslash) and then right click on "accicons.exe", choose properties and uncheck read only box. I did that with "fpicon.exe" "outicon.exe" "pptico.exe" "wordicon.exe" "xlicons.exe". And then, I started Microangelo librarian, then opened the file "Microsoft Excel.ink". Then, i saw a lot of icon, i right clicked on the one i wanted to change and choosed replace. I browsed to the icon i wanted and then i clicked open. I choosed save and the icon is changed. I didn't reboot but i will and post an other message to let you know if it worked fine.
