Icons

An icon is a small picture that represents an item you can manipulate. Windows uses icons on the desktop and in Windows Explorer to represent folders, files, disks, programs, the Recycle Bin, and hardware devices (Figure 1.28).

Figure 1.28. An icon’s image depends on what it represents. System objects, such as the Recycle Bin and My Computer, have default images. All documents of the same type—.txt files, for example—have the same icon. Programs (.exe files), such as Internet Explorer, have icons created for and incorporated into the program.
