Windows 11 Pro 21H2 64-bit (build 22000.282)
Hello!

I recently installed Windows 11 in a virtual machine just to look at it and familiarize. I liked the new system icons, so I wanted to extract them using a utility such as Customizer God and be able to use it in Windows 10. I launched Customizer God but for some weird incompatibility reason loaded without displaying any application window, so it is useless. Compatibility mode to Windows 8 or whatever else made no difference. So I copied the known files, batmeter.dll, imageres.dll etc from Windows\System32 folder and tried to open them in Windows 10, only to get the message that "this file contains no icons"! Only pnidui.dll contained the Windows 10 familiar networking icons, so it is of no use, I have these already. All the other DLL files contain no icons! So does anyone knows which system files contain the system icons and how to extract or replace them? Thank you in advance.

"this file contains no icons"
I use IcoFX.
If I open a dll as .dll - no icons(pic.1-2), you need to choose the type ico (pic.3-4)
Maybe.

+ %systemroot%\system32\imageres1.dll

Hi there
@spapakons
@jbcarreon123

You can check manually -- bit of a pain but do-able.

Just create any desktop short cut .
In its properties go to change icon.

E.G Filezilla here as an example -- but any desktop short cut will do -->properties-->advanced
Browse to any program in the program dropdown you think has an ICON in it including dll's
Those that do will show a selectable list from which you can choose.

For those who want a basic ICON creator you can still google for the last ICOFX FREE version before they "went Pro" --i.e PAY. Version I.6.4 -- still works perfectly for typical stuff - no need to buy latest version. GOOGLE for it if you want to use it. Working fine on W11.

ikon.png

I hate it when companies who offer Freeware suddenly go "All Pro" - especially if the basic free version does what I suspect here about 90% of users for this type of thing want. - I can understand need for Pro quality software as well with loads of extra features which a studio etc might want - but basic home users !!!!


Cheers
jimbo

You need to look in fonts also: Ever since Windows 95, Microsoft Windows has used fonts as a low level resource to build the interface, instead of separate image files or embedded icons in executable files or dynamic link libraries. It all began with Marlett TTF:1625954480792.png

More recently in Windows 8 the SegoeUI font family has been used has been used for various elements of Windows 8 and in Windows 10 screen elements come from Segoe MDL2 Assets and Hololens MDL2 Assets, which may be stacked, colorized and animated, see the Windows document here:

_IconsExtract - Extract icon/cursor stored in EXE, DLL, OCX, CPL files
Copyright (c) 2003 - 2010 Nir Sofer, but works on Win10
Loads all icons in c:\windows\system32\*.dll
Yes, IconsExtract is a very good utility, I use it when need to find a rare icon, which does not present in imageres, or browse all existing icons to find the best metaphor. When the source file is located, it's easy to choose a particular icon in a standard icon selection UI (which, unfortunately, is very old and apparently hasn't been updated since Windows 95).

Thank you for your help. I will try to open the respective .MUN files. A bit of advice here: do not mess with shell32.dll or you will not be able to load Windows 10/11 again! You will have to restore the original file in order to load Windows again!

No matter where you go, there you are

Always copy the original file to another directory and work on the copy. If replacing a file, rename the original .old or something similar before moving the modified copy to that directory

Hello!

I was able to change most default system icons by copying the file C:\Windows\SystemResources\imageres.dll.mun to another location, replace the icons with Customizer God and then restart in Command Prompt in order to replace the original file with the modified file. When restarting again in normal mode all folder icons (and many others) where those of Windows 8.1 Success! I could also replace the icon for USB safe removal by opening the file C:\Windows\System32\Stobject.dll.

Please tell me where the rest taskbar icons are, like the network icons. Thanks
