IDEA: Save icons for specific filetypes...
« on: August 22, 2007, 06:41:47 AM »
Hi,

I want to install foobar (media player) but I would like to keep the icons for all the media types which are configured at the moment by WMP 11. I was wondering if there existed a program that would save all the registry associations of the icons and create a backup, so after installing a program that changes icons, you don't have to manually go through all the media types and change the icons - you could easily restore the registry association of the icons from the backup.

Or maybe an idea for a coding snack...I think it would come in handy - after customizing all the icons, taking a snapshot for backup :)

Phil

Yes...there is such a program.

...or at least I seem to remember it being able to preserve icons associated with file types.
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.
