Designing your miniature masterpieces is only part of your task at hand æ actually exchanging one icon for another can be a nonintuitive task for Windows users. Replacing icons for system accessories (such as the clock or notepad) requires following a different set of steps than you would to replace a shortcut to an application or a new document icon. And if you've upgraded to Windows XP, you'll have a new set of icon housekeeping rules to follow.

  • The Icon FAQ at iconarchive.com provides straightforward answers to basic questions about icon creation and replacement under both Macintosh and Windows.

  • Macintosh users will find the small but growing repository of articles at Xicons most helpful for direct assistance with updating icons under Mac OS X and customizing Apple's default system icons.

  • VirtualPlastic.net offers very detailed information about replacing all icon types on your Windows desktop and other interface elements.
