    ================================You don.t 'really' need wordpad on the phone...but it helps for quick mods. I'm at work right now. When I get home I'll write you a tutorial w\ screen shots, enclose the dll,some sample icon.lnks, and the icon map w\ images from the the dll. I run everything from the card. I get home about 8 central. Posted via Q9m.

    I am spending the time to read over now.( Slow day at work shhhhh don't tell my boss) I currently have 2 folders that I want to modify a misc. folder that holds all the junk that I dont use but am afraid to delete or don't know how to delete and a folder for my weather program. But if I can learn how to do it who knows maybe I will change all or most that way my q is different.

    ====================So the tutorial was pretty clear and understandable? I can do it, but It'll be on my list. I am working on several private requests, a few from EQ and a couple of my own projects. Somewhere in this thread or one linked from it is the name of the program I use. It's shareware...gives you 15 days to play and figure things out...if you would like to try your self. I'm at work and away from my computer or I could give you the exact name. Posted via Q9m.

    ================================If you still want me to...the icons use 16 and 32....the image can be larger...png's seem to work best for me. Each image needs to be a separate png. Posted via Q9m.

    It's Called.....

    ================================================
    It's called GConvert 5.0. Works pretty simply ....once you get the hang of it. It will also let you look in the DLLs of third party Aps you may have on your phone. Just copy them to the computer and "explore" the dll.(A lot of third party Apps have quite a few unused icons in their DLLs) I changed some of the folders on my phone by writing the icon.lnk to direct to those DLLs.

    I got the program..and I've done a few icons.

    Can you write a tutorial on how to change the other icons (internet, messaging, contacts, etc.)?

    Thanks :D

    I'll go thru my files.....

    =====================================
    I'll go thru my notes ....I believe that Coppertop originally did the post that I used to change the existing icons that a program uses. If you can find them ...they might help. I'm in management for Kroger Gro. Stores and I just found out I'm moving to a higher volume store. I'm going to be really busy at work for a week or so....not so much time to play!! If you can't find the Coppertop instructions...I'll try to help a little here and there. I think he's on this thread...he might pop in and help also, he helped me!
