Let’s face it: some applications just have really ugly icons. We can do something about that and change the ugly icons into something more pleasing and amp up your geek skills at the same time. Here’s how.
Editor’s Note: You should make sure to backup the application .exe file before you modify the icon, just in case.
Changing the Icon for an Application
1) Download and Install a free copy of Resource Hacker into your computer.
2) Right click on Icon, If you have a Shortcut Icon on the Desktop then select "Open File Location" option.3) Right click on the Icon that you want to change and Select "Open using Resource Hacker" and a window will open like below.
5) When the dialog pops-up click on the button to locate a new icon, this can either be a *.exe, *.dll, *.res or *.ico file.
6) Once you have selected your icon, hit the replace button in the bottom right hand corner. Now select the File menu, and save the file.
And now its Done! Check out your Icon now.
