Can someone tell me how to do this? That little "e" icon has to be one of the homeliest icons to look at everyday.

I got it, yoyo. I guess what I really needed to know is that it's called "http". So I could change them with ActivIcons. Thanks.

The manual way would have been

Open regedit, navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\HTTP\DefaultIcon.
In the right pane you'll see
(Default) Reg_EXP_SZ %SystemRoot%\system32\url.dll,0
doubleclick on (Default)
in the window that comes up type the path to the icon you want to use
D:\icons\coolfavicon.ico for example
click OK and close regedit.

You may have to refresh your icon cache. Either using TweakUI or in display properties-appearence-advanced change the icon size to 33 pixel, click ok and apply, go back and change it to 32 pixel again.

Wow. I really like that. Thanks, yoyo. I'll save that for another time. I like that refreshing the icon cache trick. That's so cool.

yoyo, would you happen to know how I can change the "Show Desktop" icon I have in my Quick Launch? Thanks.

Sure :)

Drag the Show Desktop icon into a Notepad window. You now should see:

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Now replace the third line with something like

IconFile="C:\path\toyour\icon.ico"

click File > Save

That's it. Change will take effect after next reboot or icon refresh.

yoyo, I got to tell you, I think you are absolutely brilliant. You've showed me so many neat things that can be done, and I really appreciate you're prompt and "generous" responses to my questions.

Signed,

Your Mom
