Release Date: July 23, 2002.
This tiny utility is meant to offer a quick method of greatly improving the visuals throughout the OS by changing the entire array of icons with just a couple of clicks. There are no complex configurations to carry out and the program is ready to run out of the box, without requiring installation on the system it will modify.
Ever since the first Windows OS rolled out, users wanted to make some changes to personalize the looks of their preferred operating system. These modifications can be interface related or more in-depth, by tweaking system components and adding or unlocking new capabilities.
Insofar as the first category of customizations is concerned, a utility like XP Icon Raider could come in quite handy for those who still have installed on their computers Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME.
Inside the simple main window of XP Icon Raider you will find 3 buttons, each corresponding to a certain type of icons that you may want to change. Thus, the first one is allocated to the 'Class Icons', more precisely those which are displayed onto the desktop and inside the My Computer directory.
Another set of icons that can be subject to modification by XP Icon Raider are the 'Shell Icons'. This means that you can alter the icons associated to folders, those displayed under the Start Menu as well as the special ones for functions like History and others.
The third type of icons that can be changed with the help of this software solution are those that are related to the filetypes registered on the PC. In other words, you can make your documents, executables, multimedia files and other items look just like inside Windows XP.
For those who want to revert any of these replacements, it suffices to run XP Icon Raider and deactivate the functions to have everything back to the default state.
