This is an interesting little utility that makes changing icons easier than ever. It keeps the program easily accessible-mine is a little icon right on my desktop. No searching through your Windows files for the right tool to do the job.

Not only does it make changing them easy as pie, but you can get rid of that annoying background surrounding the icon text AND change the color of the text to boot! It also allows you to rebuild and increase the size of your icon cache.

The program itself is a cute little TV screen and the controls are easy to figure out. BEWARE tho....have your volume turned WAY down on your system....it has a loud sound effect that is reminiscent of old fashioned TV's being turned on. Scared the life out of me the first time I heard it. (Old ears here...need to have volume turned way up normally.) Just a small warning for those like me and with jittery nerves related to loud unexpected noises. <g>

The price is right-FREE-and it is a very quick download. For people like me, who are easily bored and seem to be constantly changing wallpapers and screensavers, this gives you another opportunity for a "change of scenery" on your desktop. Take the few minutes required to download it and have a ball.
