Modify an exe file Icon

I’m trying to follow the instructions given in:,%2C%20RES%2C%20or%20ICO%20file.

But it says an added option of “Open using/with Resource Hacker” will be added to the context menu. I’ve tried it on 3 different PCs and this doesn’t happen.

Any help ??


Just drag and drop the executable file upon Resource Hacker. It will work.

Adding the option to the context menu likely stopped working due to security updates over two years since that article was published.

Nope … didn’t work and couldn’t add an icon file to the exe. Tried a couple of ways I found on the net.

Oh well !
