Custom File Icon for executables without embeded icon

Post by TinyDot » 06 Jun 2019 07:10

I really love the Custom File Icons feature. It allows for much more visual navigation.

I would love to be able to set a "fallback" custom icon for .exe files though. As it is now if I set custom icons for .exe files, it overwrites all executables, while what I would like is to only show the custom icon for executables that don't have an embeded icon and that because of that show the system default icon.

Is that at all possible?

It will be possible in the next beta version:

Code: Select all

    + Custom File Icons: Now you can define custom icons that are used only if 
      there is no embedded specific icon.
      Simply use the switch /d (think "default"), for example:
        *.exe /d>NiceGenericExe.ico //only for EXEs without embedded specific icon
