    Unanswered: Icon for databases


    Is there any way to assign an icon to Access 2000 so that it shows that icon in Explorer and assigns it to a shortcut if a shortcut is created to that database?

    I have tried adding an icon to the Application Icon text box under 'Startup' from the 'Tools' menu, but this doesn't change the icon.

    Make something idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot...

    you want to change the icon for the whole of access application of for a particular access file which you have?

    if it is only the file, you can do so by creating the shortcut first and then change the change the icon (right click --> "shortcut tab" --> change icon)..

    if you are looking at change the icon for MS Access, then go to folder option (control panel --> folder options) and change icon for mdb files..

    I just pressed "F1" while having the Icon option active in Startup. I got this message.

    "Type the name of a bitmap (.bmp) or icon (.ico) file
    containing an icon to display your own application
    icon in the windows title bar."

    I tried it, and no...the icon of the file won't change, only in the title bar. I call it a "Task bar" but whatever.

    Hope that helped.
