I'm not sure what you mean by checking and unchecking options for IE and FireFox.
When I reverted back to IE as default browser, I was able to set a different html icon. Then when I switched it back to FireFox, it defaulted to its own set of icons--but I am not able to change the html file type icon.
If you're feeling brave, open Regedit.exe and edit the following value.
You may need to restart Windows.
The address of the html file icon is correct (meaning that it's pointing to the icon I want) but it's still defaulting to its own Firefox icon.
I've done these things:
- Switched browser default back to MSIE (and icon changing worked)
- Played with Regedit as per [windowsxp.mvps.org...]
- Changed icon under Folder Options/File Types dialog box.
I appreciate everyone's participation in this thread. It's just annoying that I can't get this to work.
Thanks, all. :-)
Just realized that I had installed a program called IconPackager, and this was the problem! The program was controlling the icon handling.
Well, I went in there and changed the html icon and it worked.
If I didn't have the IconPackager program installed, I'm sure the other solutions posted would have worked.
