hi everyone I am a new member here and I'm not sure if this is the right section because of my unusual question. so here it is:

i have a game series called Touhou but because each one has almost the exact same Icon i sometimes open the wrong game so i though of taking a jpeg and making it to a shortcut. for example if i double left-click the image the game would run.

do you guys think that is possible without ruining the game?
thank you

Hi textra and welcome to Geekstogo!

Yes you can do so without ruining it. Just make sure you change the icon through the properties window and not the file it directs to.

Well I got some bad news here. I have zero experience in creating icons. I've been trying to figure that out myself, but haven't had much luck. I'm really sorry I'm not much help. :)

This is just a guess, but where it asks where to look for icons in the properties box, set the target to the folder rather than the file.
C:\Users\Hessam\Desktop\Touhou Project\Bullet [bleep]\TH09.5 ~ Shoot the Bullet
and then see if a list containing the picture appears in the properties box.

Edit: It changed the H3ll in Bullet H3ll to bleep, so just be sure you choose Bullet H3ll (with an E instead of a 3 =P )

i found it myself but thanks for the support guys, anyways how i did it is simple i found a website by googling "how to convert a JPG to an Icon" i got a free download converted the JPG and voila an icon is ready. next step is quite simple make a separte folder and copy-paste the .exe file in it then make a shortcut out of it, then select the change icon in properties as previously mentioned and look for the Icon that was recently created.
and your done.
any more questions or how to do it with step by step screens shots just ask, i might do it someday but I'm bus these days with college and all.
