Sometime I wanna use an particular icon that's on an .EXE (or other type of file), but there's often not an accompanying .ICO that I can use. What I've done in the past to get around that is to just make a copy of that .EXE and put it in the same whatever folder not to be used but just for a shortcut to point to it for the icon.
But this is not always feasible, such as if the icon for an updated .EXE is changed. All-in-all, it's just better to rip the icon out into like an .ICO file and maybe then just throw the .EXE away, which takes up more HDD space anyway.
So how can this be done? It's not terribly difficult, is it? Thanks!
