    How can you change icons for a specific file type?


    Hi there!

    I used many different file types each day, specially those related to image editors. I have many .psd and .ai files (documents for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator). However, since I use other programs (GIMP and Inkscape), these files look pretty ugly. They are a white sheet of paper with low resolution GIMP/Inkscape logo. And that is awful

    I think I did something with W7 like messing up with regedit in order to change that. I just want W10 to show those files with a proper icon file (.ico) I have in my computer.

    Thank you very much!

    Try e.g. Filetypesman (freeware) or Gunners File Type Editor (freeware).
    These allow you to browse to and select an icon for each file type.. look for the rt click options.
