Hello everyone,

I just re-formatted my Hard drive, installing Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and in the process I downloaded OpenOffice, 3.4. After I installed it, I immediately noticed the new icons they are using for .doc and .xls files and such and I don't like them at all - they are too plain and gray/while for me and remind me of a .txt icon. Is there any way I can change back to the old icons?

Thanks

There doesn't seem to be any build in option to change file type icons in Windows 7, but there are third-party tools available. See http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/12383/change-a-file-types-icon-in-windows-7/ for instructions for one tool.

Thanks a lot. Not only did that work great, but I found the more colorful OO icons in the process and decided to use the better set.
