    How to extract an icon form an application (using IcoFX)

    IcoFX (http://icofx.ro) is a very powerful icon editor that can be used to create and modify icon files.
    It also can be used to extract icons form applications.

    Normally IcoFX must be installed, but there is also a portable version available that can be used without having to install it (nothing will be modified on your system).
    Here we describe the usage of the portable version only.


    Installation (Portable Version)

    • Just download the portable version from the following website:
      https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/icofx_portable

    • Double click the downloaded file.
      The assistant will now prompt you for a folder, where the portable application will be copied to.
      This can be any folder of your choice like (like C:\temp\IcoFX) but also an USB device.

    Note:
    The installer will place some files in this folder directly, so you should create a separate folder named "IcoFX".


    Starting IcoFX Portable

    Just double click the file IcoFXPortable in the folder where you have unpacked IcoFX (like C:\temp\IcoFX).


    Extracting an Icon

    Before you can extract an icon from an application you have to find out where the application is stored.
    Most applications are stored in the folders:

    • C:\Program Files
    • C:\Program Files (x86)

    Search in these folders for the name of your application.

    To extract an icon perform the following steps in IcoFX:

    1. Click on the Open button
    2. Select Windows Binary in the field File Type
    3. Navigate in the folder structure to the folder where the application is stored and select the application
    4. Click on the Open button

    1. Now select the icon you want to extract
      Some applications have multiple icons stored, here you have to select the icon that is also shown on your desktop or in your start menu.
      This should normally be the top-left icon in the list.

    2. Click on the Button Extract

    Now you see the selected icon in the editor of IcoFX.
    The icon is available in multiple sizes (marked with a red square in the image above).

    1. Click on the Button Save and save the icon in a folder of your choice.

    Now you can

    • send us the icon via email (tom [at] vulndetect [dot] com) or
    • attach the icon to a forums posting

      In Windows 10 you just need to double click the ZIP file and select Extract all from the menu.
      Then select the target folder.


    Starting IconsExtract

    Just double click the file IconsExt in the folder where you have unpacked IcoFX (like C:\temp\IconsExtract).

      You want to extract an icon and not a mouse cursor.

    3. Click on the Search For Icons button
