AppIconReplace 1.0

Easily change the icon of a file or a folder using AppIconReplace (See all)

AppIconReplace is a small and easy-to-use program that allows its users to replace icons in executable files as well as file folders. AppIconReplace creates a backup for that file or folder before changing its icon - this is to ensure that if in some case the executable file malfunctions and fails to work properly upon the icon change, then the user can use the backup.

Clearly an advantage of using AppIconReplace is that its Interface is very intuitive and user-friendly. The icon change process is carried out through a series of three small steps. The first step asks for the target file or folder. The second step asks the user to select the new icon for that file or folder. The third step successfully finishes the icon change process. AppIconReplace is compatible with almost all commonly used versions of Microsoft Windows such as Windows 98, 2000, Me, NT and XP. A remarkable feature of AppIconReplace is that the folder icon changed by it continues to show even when the folder is moved to another computer.
