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.

UPDATED!

:bulletblue: YOU CAN USE THE PROVIDED iPACK ICONPATCHERS!

WINDOWS 7, 8 & 8.1

Blanked iPack by neiio

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

This will allow me to change VLC Media Player Icons from orange traffic cones to anything I wanted?

You need to download this .zip where it says download on the right.  Not on the link for the iPack version.

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.

Font used in screenshot: Kroeger 05_55 Caps

2 ways to change font:
 
vistastylebuilder.com/forum/in…
1. Whatever theme you are using you can open the msstyles file in Reshacker and use "Find and Replace" to the font you like. I find it faster than using Stylebuilder (which most ppl might not have) to change each font individually. This will take care of a large majority of your fonts.

customize.org/blogs/uac%20mari…
2. The font substitution method can pretty much take care of whatever is left. I'd recommend backing up your system/registry if you want to use this method. One particular font I don't recommend changing is the "MS Shell Dlg"="Microsoft Sans Serif" portion. Changing that font causes issues in places like the color pallete changer, etc. It can be fixed in fontlab by utilizing the upm size of the original font but that's getting way more extensive than most would like.

Well Iīve used Icon packager in the past, with mixed impressions of the software, most importantly I mightīve run out of trial for it, could you accomplish the same result with say.. Restorator 2007?

Yeah Iconpackager pretty much sucks if you ask me.  I miss e-icons for XP, that was better.

Itīs perfectly usable, itīs just somewhat bothersome to use and in my experience it didnīt seem to cover all system folders
