    Is there a way to change MS Word file icons in Windows 7 x86. Since i know it has been possible on XP under view file options menu, and the same option is not available in 7?

    My preferred weapon of choice is to edit the actual icon source file.

    But a really good little utility for changing a file extension icon is FileTypeMan from NirSoft, which gives an instant result. Works great on my 64bit Win7 system. Just remember when you've selected your new icon not to move it from that location. Best to set yourself up an "icons" folder somewhere.
