    I have just been cleaning-up my Windows desktop and adding some shortcuts to Handspring and other files. I would like to make my own custom Icon for on the desktop, but have no clue how to.
    Help would be appreicated.

    Right click on the shortcut or mabie the actual program icon and then select properties then at the botom of the shortcut tab there is a button called change icon...

    I think icons are small .jpg or .gif files

    that is about all I know...

    I don't know how to create an icon from scratch but Hide Itoh has made Visor & other Palm icons. You can download & use it for free. It's really cool!

    M$'s Visual C can create them, so can ImageEdit, on most M$ programming tools CDs. If you search on or any other site, you'll find plenty, including some that can edit icons within executables. Icons are actually stored in bitmap-like form (I'm a Windows programmer), yet are more complicated, and can hold multiple resolutions.

    They are not compressed in any way--that's why Win2K has 12K icons (16-bit color icons at 16x16, 32x32, 64x64).
