Did you ever try customizing a folder on your desktop using an icon? Choosing a folder icon requires that you select a picture in a correct Windows icon format.

If you want to make a Windows desktop icon out of any image, you require a tool to perform icon conversion.

Use a third-party tool like as Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro!

Any user is able to make a native-looking Windows XP or Windows Vista icon using Any to Icon Pro or ArtIcons Pro! All you require to create your personal icons is an image you choose and an icon transforming tool.
It only requires seconds to make a fine-looking icon out of any graphic file. To convert an image to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and add files to the program. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG files and converts them to ICO files. Specify options for your icon, like the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Shape the image with a cut instrument, and you have a native Windows icon which you can assign to any directory! Your new icon already contains all sizes that are necessary to place your directory correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view resolution you determine. Compact view, list view or large view will appear equally nice, with cool transparency options and sleek edges.
