Make your own Icons for your web applications and folders

January 20, 2012 Leave a comment

Are you board with just looking at row’s of yellow folders or web applications which just have a white page with the little blue E or firefox logo on your desktop?

Then you could create your own icons to jazz up those boring folders and web apps instead using this freeware software called ToYcon

1 ) Download the zip file

2) Extract it using win zip or other unzipping software

3) Once extracted you should see a folder called ToYcon

4) In that folder should be the a little .exe file called ToYcon

5) Double left click to strat it and you should get a icon on your desktop

6) Drag the image you want as a icon into the ToYcon icon and this shuld create a nice icon

This can then be used instead of just that little yellow folder or web page icon.
