Hello I was just wondering how I would save a bitmap file as an icon file.  I know how to convert the bitmap to an icon, but I do not know how to save it to disk once it is converted.  Thanks for the help.

Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap("c:\temp\test.bmp");
Icon icon = ImageToIcon(bmp);

// How do I save the icon to disk??

// Convert an image to an Icon
System.Drawing.Icon ImageToIcon(System.Drawing.Image image)
{
    return System.Drawing.Icon.FromHandle(((Bitmap) image).GetHicon());
}
