video Make *.ico file in 30 seconds
Here's how to make an *.ico file in 30 seconds. No software to download...you need just a small picture. You can use *.gif, *.png and *.jpeg. Use this site: http://converticon.com/ to convert your picture to an *.ico file. If you want to change the icon on a folder (like I did on the video) I recommend you to check 32 x 32 in the export options and if you want to use it on your site (favicon) choose 16 x 16. Well I hope you like my 30 seconds tutorial! I made it for Forbes Teach Me Fast Contest!

EDIT: Sometimes there's a problem with the site and it can't save your icon. You can also use this site:  http://iconverticons.com/ . It's very easy to use it. Good luck!

there is a .exe file that does not show this change icon function but if i make a shortcut it will let me do it on the shortcut , why is that ?

As far as I know if you want to change the icon of an .exe file, you have to do that when you create the .exe. file. Or you can change it with some other software...search google for more information.

at which step in visual studios do you do this ? cuz i created 4 programs and i never been presented with the option to change the icon pic ?

Thanks !!! I used imagezicon converter (freeware) but this is much simpler and quicker

Even though this is a nice way to convert an image to .ico, that site only allows .png to be converted to .ico and when you convert a high quality image; the quality of the newly converted .ico is downgraded and becomes very poor quality.

Thank you for posting this, but do you know of a way to make a .ico file from scratch?

oh, and to make from scratch, make a picture using a paint software or something, then upload
