    I used notepad to open an .ini file and now it is the default icon. Notepad seems to be associated with every.ini file now. I would like it to go back to default. Does anyone know how to restore the old .ini icon and remove the association to notepad?

    Thanks alot

    The icon is in:
    -- C:\WINDOWS\System32\shell32.dll

    Simply launch Explorer
    Go to the "Tools" menu
    Folder Options
    File Types
    Find .INI in the list
    Click Advanced (you may have to click restore first)
    Change Icon
    Insert the path/file listed above
    Find the icon (located near the recycle bin- old style)

    As for the default viewer, Notepad is.
