Basic icon searcher

Search for icons and cursors anywhere on your computer.

IconsExtract allows users to scan their computers for icon and cursor files and then save them elsewhere on their machine. Although there's not much to this program, it does function as described.

The program's interface is basic and consists of a single screen. Users can designate particular folders to scan or, alternately, can have the program scan individual programs. Users can scan for icons, cursors, or both, and can also restrict the search by size and color depth. We had the program search our entire hard drive and it took several minutes, which isn't unreasonable when it returned more than 14,000 results. Searches of individual folders and applications were significantly faster. The resulting icons and cursors are displayed alphabetically within the program, and users can save selected icons and cursors or copy them into the clipboard. The Details view allows users to sort the icons by size and file type as well. The program has no Help file, but its functions are so basic that we didn't miss it. Overall, the program was very easy to use and provided quick results. Although some users may prefer a more refined interface, the program does what it was designed to do.

IconsExtract is free. It comes as a ZIP file and runs after extraction, with no need for installation. We recommend this program to users who need a quick and easy way to find icons and cursors on their computers.
