In Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\Graphics\Icons is too common used. I want more choice, other than this.

Icons is nice at that site you suggested. Unfortunely, I want *.ico file not *.gif

Hi
If you can not find icon you need at http://vbaccelerator.com/iconlib.htm, take a look at  http://www.coolarchive.com/icons.cfm - there are more 4000 icons. If it's not enough for you, try http://www.cs.indiana.edu/picons/ftp/index.html. If all above doesn't help - you have to draw icons yourself <smile>

When i go to that Web site (http://www.freefever.com/graphics), i right click on the GIF image, and save it as a BMP file.

Then with Paint i copy the image (or a part of it) into the clipboard, and paste it in my icon designer tool (Visual C++ for example).

It's a little bit manual, but it works fine and i made very cute icons that way.

The hongkong link didn't work for me but I was able to find  "Icon Digger 2000.exe" at this site:

http://soft.biugates.com

It can extract icon files from exe files and convert bmp files to icons.
But it doesn't do gifs.

But I did find "XnView.exe" at this site:

http://www.xnview.com

It can convert from 400 different graphis to about 40 different graphics.
It can convert a whole folder of files at once - including gifs to windows icon files.
I know, I just did it.

It has many editing features also - and the best part - they were both free downloads!

I hope this helps you all.
