Using Microsoft Office 2010 icons
So – what would you use these Office 2010 icons for? Well, for starters, you could change the icons on your current version of Office!
To use these icons on your PC, you will need to update the file type options. This allows you to then use these new Office 2010 icons on your older version of Microsoft Office. Note that the same procedure can be applied to any icon pack.
Open My Computer, and go to Tools > Folder Options > File Types. Here, select the file type you wish to update, then go to Advanced > Change Icon… and Browse to find your new icon files.
Similarly, an application icon can be changed by browsing to its folder, right-clicking on the icon and choosing Properties > Shortcut > Change Icon…. Again, Browse for the icon file that you want to use instead, and click OK and Apply to make the change.
