Hi all - i understand that this might call for the use of resource hacker ( which i really dont have much experience using ) but im willing to give it a try or perhaps any other method(s) that might be suggested.

PDF-XChange has a horrible looking icon ( to me anyways ) that it sets for pdf files.
i would like to change the i con to another of my choice.

This is the one it sets for PDFs that you save or create by default:


This is the one that i would like to make the default for new PDFs:


Can anyone advise on how i would go about achieving this?

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Type regedit.

Expand: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

Scroll down to PDF-XChange.Document (or something similar).

Expand it and click on DefaultIcon.

In the right-hand pane, double-click the default value and change the path to where you saved your customized icon (.ico file).

Reboot the computer.

Or, read THIS.
