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, documents, 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 My Computer and the Recycle Bin have default images. All documents of the same type—Text (.txt) files, for example—have the same icon. Program (.exe) files such as Internet Explorer have icons that were created for and are part of the program.
