If you want to create a Windows desktop icon from any picture, you need an application to do the icon conversion.

It only requires seconds to create a fine-looking icon from any image file. To transform an image to a Windows icon, just start Any to Icon and add files to the list. Any to Icon supports BMP, GIF, JPEG, and PNG images and transforms them into ICO files. Define options for your icon, such as the resolution (16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 pixels) and opacity. Square the picture with a cut instrument, and you have an original Windows icon that can be assigned to any directory! Your new icon already has all sizes that are necessary to place your folder correctly in Windows Explorer regardless what view size you determine.
