Intro: 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!

Someone has no respect for the "be nice" policy on this site and should just keep his comments to himself.

At least my comment has some value as a suggestion. You are just being a tool.

Define 'tool'

Last I heard it wasn't possible to become an inanimate object

If you prefer to watch videos without sound, you can always use the volume button. There are way more annoying sounds that this one.

Of course I know this. Yours isn't the only video accompanied by sound that is annoying. It's nice not to have to mute a video. The sound doesn't add anything to the video. You don't have to agree, but I thought it was worthwhile to offer a suggestion.

It wasn't worthwhile. Your opinion is not valued. Perosnally, I think the sound adds character and substance to the video.

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.
