Exe Icon Changer
If you want to change the icon of an executable file and you're looking for a very simple application to do that, Exe Icon Changer may come in very handy.
The application enables you to replace the standard icon of any executable or DLL file with one of your own, providing a very simple and user-friendly application to guide users throughout the whole process.
Basically, every executable file includes an icon of various dimensions, but Exe Icon Changer allows you to change them all with just a few clicks.
It's enough to click on the new icon, pick the one you wish to replace and hit the “Replace” button shaped in the form of an arrow. Doing that for all dimensions should do the job, although it could take a while before completing it.
The integrated “Options” menu can be used to enable a dedicated tool for making a backup copy of every single processed file and truth is, you really need one because the whole icon changing process may break down the executable file.
In addition, Exe Icon Changer can add Context Menu options for a total of four different formats, namely EXE, DLL, OCX and ICO.
The application acts lightly on system resources, but keep in mind that Windows 7 users need administrator privileges to be able to process executable files.
That being said, Exe Icon Changer is indeed a very simple way to change the icon of an EXE file, and a few improvements here and there could make it a top product in this particular software category.
