Sib Icon Extractor
Sib Font Editor is a simple-to-use utility designed to help you quickly track down icons across multiple locations and extract them. It has some powerful options worth looking into.
Setting up this application is a fast and easy task, and the only notable factor about it is that it lets you make file associations.
Various methods for finding icons
As far as the interface goes, Sib Font Editor adopts a user-friendly window with a clear-cut structure, where you can ask the tool to locate all icons in a specific directory, customize the file types to look for, include or exclude subdirectories, exclude duplicates, and search within archives (ZIP, RAR).
Alternatively, you can import files, set the program to browse all local disks for icons, scan an Internet link for icons, or locate associated icons.
Extract icons or just their frames
Selected icons can be extracted to the disk, or their frames may be saved as image files. It's also possible to rename, split, combine or duplicate icons, correct names, delete duplicates, filter icons by size, color or format, as well as to export the entire icon library to a 16-bit or 32-bit DLL.
Configure app settings
Furthermore, Sib Font Editor lets you customize the Windows icons and file type associations, disable confirmation dialogs when deleting icons from the collection or updating program files, personalize the bitmap background colors, save the tool's window size and position at exit, or show images in the main menu.
