  1. Changing Web Shortcut Icons on Desktop


    Hi all!

    I would like to add some web Shortcuts to my desktop and then change the icon so it shows a graphic for what the item is. I know how to add a web site short to the desktop, but the icon is just generic. For example, say I want to add an web shortcut for Taco Bell and for UCLA (for example). I add the short cuts to the desktop, then I want to make the generic icons look like Taco Bell's bell logo and UCLA's mascot (a bruin). I assume there is an easy way to do this because I have seen these; I am just clueless on how to do it. Can you point me in the right direction, please? Thanks!!

    :)

    Web shortcut icon changer?

    Example: Windows XP allows you to created a web shortcut and place it on the desktop and also allows you to change the icon image.

    Is this possible on a Touch Pro 2 Window OS 6.5? If possible, how would you do it? I googled the subject to death but could not find anything related to this. The only thing I found was programs allow changing icons for programs/.exe files; nothing was found
    for web shortcuts and web shortcut icon changer.

  3. Icon for btmail

    To add a shortcut to the desktop:

    • Right click on the desktop (not on an icon)
    • Select New > Shortcut
    • type "http://" without quotes and type the web address you want to go to (BT | Using the power of communications to make a better world)
    • Click Next and type in a name for the shortcut (this will be the text under the shortcut)
    • Click Finish
    This will create a new icon on the desktop that leads to bt.com
