I know I have done this before, I just don't remember how!  I have a custom toolbar and I want to put a custom icon on it.  How do I get my icon on the button?  Thanks

My bad.  I should have been more specific.  When I say "custom icon", I meant not one of the ones you normally have to choose from and not to create my own.  In my case, I have a copy of the Adobe PDF icon and I want to paste it on a toolbar button.  How do I do that?

If you copy the button image to the clipboard from any graphics app you will have the option to "Paste button image" in your toolbar button while customising your toolbar.

All icons used for this must be of the 16x16 format.  

".  In my case, I have a copy of the Adobe PDF icon and I want to paste it on a toolbar button.  How do I do that?"

Step1: Copy and paste the Adobe icon into Paint
Step2: Copy from Paint into clipboard.
Step3: In the Customize dialog for menus/toolbars - Paste the new image.

Note ... you  can also search your C drive using *.ICO ... and find a TON of 16x16 icons.  Also, a Google search will find many free icons.
