Hidden Icons

Thank you for your previous Help! Well this time I would like to know where I can view the different icons that are apparently on my computer that are to my knowledge "hidden".
In a computer magazine it states that if we change for example the default icon key (for My Computer) to C:\windows\system\pifmgr.dll,30 this now shows a life raft icon or using the same string different digets(for the Recycle Bin) C:\windows\system\pifmgr.dll,37 this will show sticks of dynamite. ?How does one find all the different types of icons available, to view visibly as icons, with out knowledge of the above strings. Thank you.
Regards Ian Kendall

  Right click on any shortcut, then choose properties, then click the "Shortcut" tab. You will see a button that says
"Change Icon". Choose Browse and look at "Shell32.dll" or "Pifmgr.dll" or in windows "moricons.dll". There is an easier way by finding a icon viewer utility(there's dozens of them) that will open up a dll icon file. The best In my opinion is "Microangelo".
