I have a MS-DOS bat file that I have written.

However, I am wondering is it possible to change the icon to something different?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

For just that one batch file or all batch files? – Synetech Feb 16 '12 at 2:57

The icon is determined by the command line extension, so no.

What you can do is create a shortcut to this application (right-click on the file in explorer and activate "Create Shortcut".

You can then set the icon on this shortcut to whatever you like.

One option you have is to create a shortcut to the bat and then set an icon for the shortcut.
