Editors' review

Bored of your Desktop look? Though the freeware won ??t make a major overhaul of your system, it enables you to quickly change icons. The program comes with 11 nice icon themes. Plus, you can create your own ones. IconTweaker enables you to return your icons to the previous state with one button click. Users, who work on computers running operating systems other than Windows XP, will appreciate the ability to change folder and disc icons. The app gives you an easy access to hidden Windows settings that let you remove an arrow and the ??Shortcut to.. ?? prefix from shortcut icons. Simple and free, IconTweaker is a good choice for anyone who want to instantly embellish Windows looks.

    "Unsatisfactory"

    October 10, 2010   |   By symbolicme619

    Version: IconTweaker 1.1

    Pros

    This program is pretty easy to use and the perfect choice for people who want to change icons of one of their files.

    Cons

    For people who want to load an icon package for their system like *.ips etc, this program is useless unless you want to waste your time applying icons toeach and every file. Instead of downloading this, i suggest people to buy Axialis Icon Workshop

    "Quite Disappointed"

    April 24, 2010   |   By rikiki_angel

    Version: IconTweaker 1.1

    Pros

    -Changes windows systems icons, there are some icon packs online to change a lot of icons with one click
    -Can individually change a folder/drive icon.(Click last two icons in the preview picture)
    -Changes all cursors also

    Cons

    Using XP. Does not change all icons: you try right click in browser and save anything and it'll come out the My Recent Documents, Desktop, My Documents, etc. The first two icons cannot be changed, kind of break my icon theme.
    Continued in summary...

    Summary

    -Individual .ico icon sometimes cannot be opened to use and I have to make use another program to make it into a .icl icon library to make this program open and use the icon.
    -I'm not sure if it's this program's fault but when I first use it, my text files icon and configuration settings icons become sharing the same icon and no matter what I try if I change one of the icon, the other icon will change, reverting them back to windows icons does not help.
    -Hmm, not really a con for me but I should say that the icons packs that come with this program are not very pretty.

    "Not Much of A Difference..."

    December 16, 2009   |   By philw19642002

    Version: IconTweaker 1.1

    Pros

    I do see a few icons that have a slite different look to them but not many!!

    Cons

    Do not see that much of a change to my iCons. I had iCon Desktop Toy 4.1 before I downloaded iCon Tweaker. Maybe that has an effect on what I now see??

    Summary

    I did like the selection I could choose from but however post downloading iCon Tweaker I do not see much of a change to my Desktop!!

    "Looks Great!"

    November 26, 2009   |   By jpboyrox

    Version: IconTweaker 1.1

    Pros

    Just downloaded it! Looks great, really excited about jazzing up my icons!

    Cons

    Seems very easy to use so far

    Summary

    Not a particularly attractive piece of software, not compared to icon packager anyway but beggars can't be choosers and it does the job just as well!

    "Changes all Icons with the Click of a Button"

    November 04, 2009   |   By katnip3

    Version: IconTweaker 1.1

    Pros

    Themes radically change all icons from "My Computer" to "Workgroup."

    Cons

    The program does not specifically give you icons to change individual folders. The way everything works is through themes.

    Summary

    Gives all your folders a brand-new look.

    "Not exactly what you would think of an icon-maker"

    October 12, 2009   |   By Dlanod5

    Version: IconTweaker 1.1

    Pros

    It has icons, yes but microsoft´s are better by far.

    Cons

    icons are some what made in a hurry, and have nothing to motivate you to keep them

    Summary

    An Icon, got´s to be SMART, since its quiet, its got to say a LOT when you see it, and... here is where this package fails.
