I just got windows media player 11 beta. But now the icon for all audio files are different. Insted of the classic windows media icon, they are white with a blue note and "mp3". I was wondering if I could change it back to the old? I dunno if this is a new thing or what, but whatever it is, it would be great to have all my audio files' icons back to how they use to be, so i can find them easier.

thanks for help

You can change icons. Right click on it and go to properties. Then there should be an Icon Change button. Try that, but it might take a while to do all of them.

You can, but it would involve editing the registry. And, CR, he means the actual MP3 icons.

Not at all. It's way easier than that.

Tools > Folder Options > File Types

Select MP3 on the list, click Advanced, and hey presto - Change Icon.

Lather, rinse, repeat for any other file type using an icon you don't like.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
