Although it looks somewhat dated it works well. Unlike many tools of this type, file paths can be passed through the command line and through other apps. I have this setup as a tool in FreeCommander to empty directories quickly and easily. Be careful with the computer icon. It's meant for deleting an edited folder list. If it's clicked after scanning, even with the test only boxed checked, it will immediately delete every folder listed!

I actually have got an incredible amount of use out of this program. One would think you would run it once and never need it again, but when you are trying to organize huge amounts of data this utility becomes very useful.

The IconsExtract utility scans the files and folders on your computer, and extract the icons and cursors stored in EXE, DLL, OCX, CPL, and in other file types. You can save the extracted icons to ICO files (or CUR files for cursors), or copy the image of a single icon into the clipboard.

This is a great icon extractor. Been using it since it was published nearly one year ago.

@the_watcher - I'm on Win 8.1 and don't use Windows Explorer that often so I can't really verify. I use CubicExplorer.

FYI, if anyone wants a command line tool for this type of thing, Microsoft has provided an app called filever.exe in their support tools since W2k.
