Blanked Icons! by neiio Blanked Icons! by neiio
I get asked these quite a lot.  Due to my screenshots usually which often are without icons.


In order to use the included blanked.ip theme you will need to be running IconPackager by Stardock.
It will blank out most system icons.


The Blank.ico is for those hard to handle application files and such.
You will need a copy of Resource Hacker in order to open the executible files
you are trying to blank out.  In the opened .exe file you will generally be able to
see the icon you wish to blank out.  Here is where you replace it with the included Blank.ico file.

Also a usefull tip for changing superbar icons...…


Once you get the hang of it it's easy enough.

Question?  Let the Discussions ensue! ;)

I don't find blanked.ip theme on my iconpackager, it didn't included. Would you mind to link me that?
Or maybe I should do it manually

Great pack, Jamie! I do it manually, with a blank .ico file...but this is great for people who want to do most of them in one pop I suppose.

My personal opinion. I've never quite understood the obsession with using icons everywhere. I find them very distracting. To me, fonts are so much more a key ingredient to navigating an interface. It would be so nice if there was an options to just turn icons off in windows/other OS's. OK, ending rant. :)

Never used IconPackager but it's probably the safest start for changing icons. It'd be a great way to preview an icon theme idea just to see if the look works with the theme you're going for. I personally go straight for the dll's and reshack since I'm not a fan of applications that layer on top of the system (Most times they are a bit buggy/unstable). It's also much more thorough. Great post Neiio.
