  1. Sarkut, Thanks for your reply. Normally I tend to figure out things like this after a bit of old fashioned troubleshooting but this one seems to have me a bit stumped and it's crawling under my skin! Yeah, I thought of that as well but then the following happens - see screenshots. I have the plug-in installed for .ico files - but that doesn't seem to be working either. Is there a plug-in for GIF files? What am I missing here? I'm so confused... LOL I am going to pull it apart again over the weekend, maybe on Monday or Tuesday I can report that I got everything straighten out. poolsharkzz
  2. Hello to all... I am having problems with icon file types (.ico) and I am looking for a bit of help. This is what I would like to do: 1.) Have .ico files display in a program called Icon Catcher and have it set as default so that "Scan with Icon Catcher..." appears at the top of the context menu in bold letters when I right-click on a .ico file. 2.) Have .ico files open up in Paint.net when I am trying to edit them. Currently, .ico files open up in Windows Paint and I cannot stand using that crappy program - especially after being spoiled with the genius of Paint.net for so long! (LOL) 3.) As described above, I have the same problem with GIF files opening up in Windows Paint in order to edit them. To display GIF files, I use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. I use the same setup with other image file types, such as for PNG, JPEG and BMP - I edit using Paint.net and when I need to display them, I use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. Easy enough, right? I am stuck - is this a registry change? What gives? I have tried making changes in the Control Panel / Folder Options / File Types Tab with each file type (.ico and GIF) matching it up like the others but I cannot seem to get anything to work correct. Anyone have any suggestions? I am using XP Home SP3 Thanks, poolsharkzz
