Icons and More Icons
You can choose icons for any of your desktop shortcuts. All you have to do is right-click the current icon and choose Properties. When the Properties dialog box opens, click the Shortcut tab and then click Change Icon.

When the Change Icon dialog box opens, you'll see a list of icons from which to choose. If you don't care for any of the icons shown here, click Browse. Now you can search for some icons. A good first stop is Moricons.dll. This file contains a wide variety of icons from which to choose.

You'll find icons in many DLL files. Just open them one at a time and see what they have to offer. And don't forget that you can use many BMP files as icons. You'll find icons just by browsing the system.
