You can use Windows to view an ICL file by right clicking on any shortcut (it must be a shortcut, not a program or data file). Select Properties and you should see a "Change Icon" button. Click that and the browse to the ICL file's location. Click on it and then Browse. Navigate to the ICL file location and click on it. Windows should show you the contents of the Icon Library. If you really want to change the icon for the shortcut you selected then pick one and assign it. Otherwise, just browse the library to see what's in it.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
