Dock icons: several sources unknowns.

GIMP www.gimp.org/ is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching,
image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages...

1. Download the program 32 ou 64 bits, extract it and launch GIMP_EN.exe, then execute Gimp from maringouin's icon which appears in task bar...
32 bits : www.aljacom.com/~gimp/gimp_2_8…
or
64 bits : www.aljacom.com/~gimp/gimp_2_8…

2. How to resize and make an icon darker ?
You may create your own dock icons :
Simply resize it 50x50 with Gimp per example : Gimp Menu Image-->Scale Image... (Width:50, Height:50)
Put it in the skins folder (iconsBright) --> Edit your paths correctly,
then create another icon darker : Gimp Menu Colors-->Brightness-Contrast...
put it in the skins folder (icons).

As for icons, to change the program, right click on the dock then Edit skin
You can change the icon :
ImageName=icons\XXX.png

You can change the program :
LeftMouseDownAction=!Execute ["XXX"]

Feel free to edit and share. End of transmission. Nicolas

How do I change apps on the dock? I tried for example changing notepad++.exe for chrome.exe (google chrome) and it still opens notepad
