    Just installed the latest windows 7 buid 7100.
    Seems OK. Third time installing Windows 7 now and I am getting used to it.

    I especially like the nice shiney printer icon I have on my desktop.

    What I would like to know where does windows hide all it's icons, I want to copy them to my HDD and use them in an earlier version of windows.

    It's the little thing which please me... :rolleyes:

    I think they still reside in the shell32.dll and quartz.dll.
    But I might be wrong since these are the old times. Also remember that you probably won't be able to use them in XP since they are 32-bit icons as I remember correctly (and XP can handle 16/8bit ico files).
    In Vista they should be OK.
