There is a popular set of file icons, originally for atom, that I want to use as my windows file icons:
I know I can create a
.ico file with the icons in it, though I don't know a particularly convenient way. (I download the
.svg, then color it, then save it as
The actual issue I'm having is if I change the icon for a given file, it actually changes the icon for the default program. (If I open
.psd .ico, .jpg, .png in photoshop, they will have the same icon.)
How can I change the icon based on the extension alone, and not what is used to open it?
I've noticed photoshop files have several different filetype & icons, while files opened with sublime text all have the same icon.
The photoshop extensions are stored in
and have a registry entry for each type.
The files opened with sublime text are all stored in
So, I assume if I could make individual registry entries for the files that open with sublime text, I would be able to give them unique icons.
Another difference, in FileTypesMan, is the
User Choice field is blank for the photoshop files, and is
Applications\sublime_text.exe for all the sublime text files.
I don't know enough about windows registry to say if changing it in this way is possible.
