IconPackager is a powerful application designed to change all icons on your Windows workstations at once, providing not only several built-in packages, but also the possibility to download new ones from the Internet.
The interface boasts an eye-candy interface that makes everything pretty easy to use, so everybody should be able to use it just fine, regardless if we're talking about rookies or more experienced users.
As said, IconPackager comes with several built-in icon packages, but it also boasts a dedicated tool to download more of them from the Internet. Of course, there's a preview window to see the content of the whole package, as well as the possibility to change colors and see live folders.
Another important tool integrated into IconPackager is the possibility to change the content of every single package, which means you can customize desktop, Start Menu, folders, drives, files, Control Panel and even cursors. Every single icon can be replaced with one of your own.
The “Settings” screen lets you pick the included icon sections, but also configure the app behavior when opening icon packages. You can thus restore all icons before opening a new package, use smart package loading or restart Windows Explorer on apply to correctly display all icons.
During our testing, IconPackager worked like a charm and applied the new icon packages without any problem. Still, it's recommended to make a backup before anything else, just to make sure you're on the safe side all the time.
All in all, IconPackager is a very handy software solution and it definitely serves its purpose in the right way. It can be safely used by beginners and more experienced users, although it doesn't include a help manual in the standard package.
