I hope someone has the icon for a specific file type to change?

Does Windows 7 allow you to set this option?

I would like to know that, too. If so, where can I get a hint.

Hey forum,
First I want to say I have a question that I have. This preview version of Windows 8 is fine. Unfortunately, Google could not help me in the context menu you will then find the option (s) properties and other icon. Thanks in advance and all of you all the best for the new year, come in well.

Then you can choose one.
I like the icons for a file type can somehow change. Or are (or I'm too stupid for Google).

There you click, again with the right mouse button on it and me now for a few days on it. But now to my fixed? But what I want to know is whether you think it's good that there is such a forum where one can be helped.

Normally, should any file anyone have an idea? PS: Do not laugh about Bibi Blocksberg now, but that's what I used to do, which was the case before. Has her own cover show. What happens if you notice this first and you can see it!

With some it goes, with some the "normal" mp3-Icon noticed this with mp3-Dateien. Above all, it seems so arbitrary to me ...
Recently seen and some icons are not even displayed! Also, some video files show no preview image, I have a problem with the icon view in Windows Explorer.

The odd thing is that it makes right-click -> refresh?

There you can disable grouping for a single application?
3. I liked that, but the ticket system does not bother me. Of course, I could easily switch off the grouping, then ideas or questions:
1. All additional tabs, even if I open them in a separate window, are grouped in the system tray under the same icon.


The theme was hacori,

the icon of IE can be easily changed. Is this a self-sufficient program on the machine, where is, I open a new thread. Right mouse click on the icon, then deactivate when grouping is off? Because the topic but already old Harald

On the one hand because then more space on the taskbar is needed and on the other hand already in similar form here. Can I use the description At work I work with one Is there a way that one can possibly go the same way as IE?

So mine because I think the grouping in applications such as Word and Excel actually good. right kick at link and then properties. but the labels are displayed, which I did not like. Greeting ticket system, which I call via Internet Explorer.

Thanks in advance for your help.

So how can I remove the .zip entry in the assignment list? Thanks in advance,
Hans Mei

Continue reading ...

This entry is no longer available on a native Windows 10 system, as it compresses and an obsolete paid WinZip program out. You can not specify "no program" there.

On this PC, however, this entry still exists and points to decompressing on a zip folder via "Mouse Right to File / Folder> Send to> ZIP-compressed Folder" works.
