Extract icons from images or program files or create your own from scratch

Icons brighten up Windows, but they also serve a more practical purpose in helping you to identify folders from files, and different types of file from each other. If you're unhappy with the icons associated with various parts of your PC, though, you'll be glad to know it's possible to change them. You can choose from icons already present elsewhere on your system, or design your own.

When it comes to creating your own icons, your first port of call might be your image editor. While most have some limited support for icons, you’ll find things a lot easier if you use a dedicated image-editing tool. And when it comes to freebie icon editors, IcoFX is one of the best. It allows you to work with icons for both Windows and Macintosh, supports image transparency (to allow your icons to blend neatly in with the background) and can be used to create icons up to 256x256 pixels in size.

You can create your icon from scratch easily enough using the simple grid to fill in your pixels, or you can extract existing icons from other files (such as program files or DLL files). You can even create icons from existing images or use IcoFX’s built-in screen capture tool to grab the image you need.

The program bends over backwards to give you all the tools you need to complete the job with the minimum fuss – over 40 effects can be applied to your icons to brighten them up, and you can export your finished icon in a number of formats, including both Windows and Macintosh system icons and even favicons for your website or blog.

Note that this is the portable version of IcoFx.

Version 2.12 brings:

- Fixed sized selections
- Deselect button for the selection tools
- Frame number in the sidebar for animations
- Images are NOT saved in reverse order anymore since the 768x768 size was dropped
- Windows icons will not contain 512x512 and 768x768 images by default
- [Fixed] Image was sometimes not rendered
- [Fixed] When importing icons the preview was not visible after 220 items
- [Fixed] Could not select animation frames if there were more than 200 frames
- [Fixed] Cursors with multiple images had incorrect hot spot in batch process
- [Fixed] Del key was not working right after exitting quick mask mode
- Enhancements and bugfixes


IcoFX has all the tools you need to create your own stunning set of icons without the need for too much artistry or hard work on your part, but the new price will put many people off.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
