GetIcon is a utility which extracts icons from any .exe or .dll file containing icons. The extracted icons may be saved to an .ico file or saved as a .bmp file.

GetIcon has many applications. Icons may be extracted to bitmap files for inclusion in documentation or websites.

Icons may extracted to .ico files so that shortcuts may have their icons changed to a local copy of icon file. This is handy for shortcuts to programs which exist on another computer or server. In these cases, the icon will not be displayed properly if the file is not available over the network. In any case, the icon will be displayed more rapidly and displaying the icon will not generate the network traffic associated with the operating system dynamically extracting the icon from the executable.
