    Modding Internet Explorer links

    I like to keep my links available at the top of my IE page. I also like to keep them personalized. You can do this too. First, unlock your Toolbar by right clicking where your Back, Forward and Home buttons are.



    Then select to have your links available.



    Then drag and release your Links bar where you want it. Assign all your most viewed sites into the Links folder. For each site shortcut, right click the individual buttons, and select properties.



    Next click: Change Icon. The next viewer will probably just show the few options currently available for that file.

    Select Browse, to see all system32 folders and files.



    Then search for Shell32.dll. This is where most of windows icons are stored. Simply search for one you like, click it and hit OK.



    Do this for each and you're set.

    If you like an icon that's not here because it belongs to another program, find the program in the Start menu. I wanted the Ultrawipe Hard drive icon for my web page shortcut.



    Right click and select properties.



    In the shortcut tab click: Change Icon




    Then select the pic location, right click and copy.



    Later, return to your links bar and right click, paste into the icon address bar.



    Press enter and now you have those icons at your disposal. There are programs that can do this too. Unless I really need something special, I'm not gonna install more programs that I have to figure out how to use.

    Could not have said that any better myself and I am sure it was intentional, probably posted it lots of forums for cheap advertisement.

    I mean I could have gone over to CMG and posted about our HyperKore system giveaway, but I thought...

    A) That would be in poor taste as I was once associated with CMG.

    B) I knew it would not be up any length of time as "someone" would delete it.


    I think it is a great how-to just the wrong backdrop.

    That's just the site I had up at the time. I'm a member of 10 forums, not just this one.

    you could at least have the decency to use the site you're posting it on. As a few members here used to be members of CMG. I feel as if this is kind of an insult.

    Fine. I'll edit it to show MI or something neutral in the backround.
