I have successfully created a ShellNew command so that I can create a new blank file with no file extension. The reg file looks like this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.] @="emptyFile" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.\ShellNew] "NullFile"="" @="Empty File" "ItemName"="" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.\ShellNew\Config] "NoExtension"="" [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\emptyFile] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\emptyFile] @="Empty File" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\emptyFile\DefaultIcon] @="%SystemRoot%\\system32\\imageres.dll,2"
This works fantastic and all. It creates the file just how I want it to, but the Icon displayed in the ShellNew window is the icon for the System Partition like so:
How can I change this icon to match the DefaultIcon I am providing for the file type itself? I have tried making an "Icon" String Value like what I had to do for the Unity and Sublime Text menu items, and that did not work no matter where I put it.
