How to Create a Computer Icon for your Game



(Windows)

1. Click Start > Run and type mspaint.exe. Click OK and Paint should start.
2. Go to Image > Attributes and set Width to 32 and Height to 32.
3. Draw your icon in the small space. DO NOT resize that space or the icon WILL NOT WORK!
4. Go to File > Save As... and type filename.ico, where filename is the name you would like to give your icon. Do not worry about the "Save As Type" box.
5. Once your icon is saved right click the shortcut you created and click on Change Icon. Then click on Browse and find the icon you just created. Click OK and then click on your icon. Press OK twice. Your icon is now attached to the shortcut. If you move the location of the icon, repeat this step.
