PostSubject: Create your own Windows XP icons in Paint   Tue Aug 25, 2009 9:21 pm

Are you tired of searching the Internet for icons to use for your shortcuts?
Do you know that you can easily create your own icons just by using WIndows XP's Paint program?

1. Launch Paint from the All Programs | Accessories menu.
2. Pull down the Image menu and select the Attributes command.
3. In the Attributes dialog box, type 32 in both the Width and Height boxes and click OK.
4. To make the image easier to work with, click the Magnifier tool and select the level 8 magnification setting.
5. Press [Ctrl]G to add gridlines.
6. Use the tools and colors to create your icon.
7. Press [Ctrl]S and save the file with an ICO extension.

You can now assign your custom icon to any shortcut you wish.

GoodLuck and have Fun!
