These are all icons in the Windows 32 x 32 pixel format, downloadable either as .gif images or as .ico images, which are actually in a .bmp (bitmap) format. There is no really easy way to set this up in Windows or html, so follow these directions carefully.

To download these in the .ico format, in which case they can be directly used as Windows icons:

  1. Select the icon of your choice and note its .ico name.
  2. Click on the "Download" button.
  3. You will see a directory of .ico images. Point your arrow on the one you wish to download and click the right mouse button.
  4. The popup menu will have an item "Save Link As. . ." Left-click on this.
  5. Your local download window will appear, probably the "My Documents" folder. If this is where you wish to download, then click "Okay." If not, then go to the directory of your choice and click "Okay." It will download automatically.

To download these in the .gif format:

  1. Point your mouse arrow to the graphic on this page.
  2. Right-click your mouse on the graphic.
  3. The popup menu will include the item, "Save Image As. . ." Click on this.
  4. Your local download window will appear, probably the "My Documents" folder. If this is where you wish to download, then click "Okay." If not, then go to the directory of your choice and click "Okay." It will download automatically.
  5. If you wish to use it as a Windows icon, it will now be necessary to use some graphics program to open the image, and export it as a .bmp image, after which you will need to rename it as an .ico image. Make sure that it's being exported as a 32x32 image.

To use the icon:

  1. Find the program or file on your computer that you wish to associate with the icon.
  2. Right-click on the name of that program or file to get the popup menu.
  3. On the popup menu, left-click on the "Properties" line.
  4. On the resulting window, click on "Change Icon."
  5. You will see a display of default icons, which are not what you want. Click the button marked "Browse".
  6. Find the directory (folder) containing the icon you just downloaded. Then double-click that icon.
  7. Click "Okay" on the icon change window, then on the properties window. It may take a second or two for the icon to change on the screen.
  8. If you have any problems with this, contact me.
