>b) Use the IconFile and IconIndex properties

To clarify, can you set the icon used by windows to display the desktop
shortcut? (This is not neccesarily the same as the favicon, unless you make
it so.) The only way I know is by right-clicking on the icon and then
changing its properties, but it'd be nifty if you could do it through a few
lines of code, too.



PS. Think I've gone a bit off-topic here... probably owe a tip... but I
can't think of anything clever that I've come up with recently... except...
oh yes, this is pretty handy:

<tip type="finding java sdk documentation" author="david landy">
To find java sdk documentation for a particular java class or method, just
type its name into google followed by "site:sun.com". Usually the first two
or three links contain references to the offical documentation and you can
jump straight in.
