Hi Izzy, for some reason the shortcuts Office XP creates do not allow you to change the icons on them (It surprises me that you where able to change most of them). What I did to get around this was I went into the Office program files and created shortcuts for all my exe files (sounds like an old TV show doesn't it? :thumbsup: ). Then I moved the shortcuts to where I wanted them, changed the icons and renamed them. That solved that problem.

Here is where they are located with Win XP Pro and Office XP: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10 The file you are looking for should have the Outlook symbol on it. To be sure you have the right file, just double click on it and outlook should open.
There is no justice, there is just us.

For Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, FrontPage, Publisher, the option "Change Icon" was available in ht eproperties. It's a wonder it wasn't in Outlook.
I Did what you said it works for it that one.
I created the shortcut in the same folder (Office 10) then i dragged it to the start menu, all programs. I didn't want it on the desktop. Then renamed (OUTLOOK.EXE) to Microsoft Outlook like the others (Well Microsoft Word etc.)
I just like the 2003 office icons they match in with XP style on the menu. And doesn't look odd or old. I'm not racing out to get office 2003 as not much difference overall.
THanks.
