    when we change the extension of a file in windows, its icon also
    changes.....
    how does windows do tht.
    in my application i require a similar approach. i want the icon to be
    dependent on the file extension not on the attributes of the file.
    i have gone trough the registry but things are not very clear. Windows
    has listed all the file extensions avaliable there, but there is no
    general way to extract icons for those extension...
    kindly help

    Well, not here. You've not only asked in the wrong place, you've asked separately in multiple wrong
    places. Even if you ask in multiple _right_places, you should crosspost so everyone can see the
    responses you're getting.
