For a Visual FoxPro Application to present a small icon in the Windows Explorer, it must have a 16X16 icon resource. ImagEdit, provided with Visual FoxPro, allows you to create this resource.


To add this ability to ImagEdit, modify the ImagEdit.ini file in the Windows directory by adding the following two lines:


Then you can start ImagEdit, and load an icon. Click Edit...New image and select Win95 16X16 as the type of resource. Create your 16X16 image.

Save the image under a new name. You can then use this resource in a FoxPro application. When Windows 95 needs the small icon in Explorer, or in the Start menu, your small icon will be used.
