Due to some new DeviantArt policy it is no longer possible to submit executable files.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R4
Released 2012-09-06.

It should now run on Windows 8. It should also display a useful error message if an icon can not be applied.

Download it here [link] if you are having problems or are running Windows 8.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R3
Released 2012-03-30.

I've fixed a problem that made backups impossible to create if no shortcuts had ever been pinned to the start menu.

Is this the final release? Only time can tell.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R2 BETA
Released 2011-09-20.

I've added three new packages! Two from ~deleket and one from ~aablab. Be sure to check them out. Also, please note that these packages are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License (see their respective license.txt file). Thus, I requested special permission to create these packages.

Otherwise, there are only some minor changes.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 BETA
Released 2011-06-26.

This release is looong over due; but now its here! I have made a lot of small updates, as well as some big once.

For the package creators I have included a way to auto assign icons to programs. I hope this will encourage more people to create packages :D

As for the rest, there is a new backup system that will ensure your shortcuts are always safe. It should be virtually impossible to destroy them now!

It is also possible to change icon of unpinned shortcuts! This is possible ONLY if you apply the package to a folder that contains the shortcuts you use then launching the program. This should not be a problem though since it's possible to apply a package to any folder on the hard-drive!

UPDATE Version: 0.5 R3 BETA
Released 2011-01-20.

Fixed an error in the Dark Token package concerning Skype.

In short. There is no need to update if you have not experienced any problems.

Introduction
A while ago I became interested in changing the icons on my Windows 7 Taskbar. Unfortunately I had to do it manually which required a lot of work. After much blood, sweat and tears I decided it was time for a change. It was time to create 7CONIFIER.

7CONIFIER is a tool is capable of changing all your taskbar and start menu icons in a single click (and key press)! All you need to do is select the package you would like to use and hit "Apply".

7CONIFIER comes pre-loaded with three packages (Eclipse 2, Token Light and Token Dark). If you like variety you can easily add more packages. Simply download a package and place it in the folder called "packages".

Features
● One click (and key press) to change your systems appearance.
● One click (and key press) to change it back.
● Comes pre-loaded with three packages.
● Supports future package releases.
● Built-in editor that allows you to edit or create you own packages.
● Works on both big and small (xp-style) icons.
● Backup system.

How to install
Simply unzip the file and place the folder called "7CONIFIER" in a good place. I do not like applications that change registry entries and spread files allover my hard drive thus 7CONIFIER won't touch the registry and it will keep to itself as much as it possibly can. To uninstall simply delete the folder -- remember to reapply your default package though.

Requirements
● Windows 7. Works on both 32 or 64 bit (thanks ~se7ensinner).
● .NET 3.5 (should be included in your Windows installation).
● Taskbar buttons need to be set to: "Always combine, hide lables". You can find this option by right-clicking the taskbar and pressing Properties. Screenshot: [link]

Preview info
● Visual style: Shine 2.0 [link] by *zainadeel (thanks ~dysgenics)
● Wallpaper: Name and author is unknown.
● Star orb: steelOrb for Windows 7 [link] by `ap-graphik

Permissions
I have been granted permission to redistribute Token [link] and Ecqlipse 2 [link] as part of 7CONIFIER by each respective author (~brsev and ~chrfb).

DD!
Woahw! Never thought I would get a DD! Never! I am honored :D

Enjoy! I hope you find it useful.

so, if you ever wanted to exchange icons for free and in one go.. then this is what you've been looking for.

The icons must be added to the package's XML-file. You can do this by using 7Conifier's built-in editor. Select the packet and hit edit to open the editor.

I've been trying to add new icon packages by saving the folder to the "packages" folder; however, they don't show up in the actual program. The image files are .png. It seems that the included icon packages are all .ico and include a .xml file. Is there any way to use my .png files in 7Conifier or do I need to convert them all to .ico manually and then write an .xml file? (Sorry for my ignorance)

:iconwronex:

You'll need to convert them to .ico and then use 7Conifier's built-in editor to add them to a package or to create your own.

Sorry for double post seems the easiest way to change task manager icon is to either Pin it to the taskbar or create a shortcut and change the icon. The problem is if you press ctrl+shift+esc to bring it up like me the icon will be the default one unless you have it pinned. The only way to change it properly is to open taskmgr.exe in a editing program and change the embedded icons.

However since that is a massive pain to do you could probably find the registry key for ctrl+shift+esc and change the path to a shortcut with the new icon.

Yeah i cant get the task manager icon to change either i have "taskmgr" in the target field and checked all the boxes when applying. But it wont change :S skype should work though open it up and find the name of the process e.g skype.exe then put "skype" (name of process without .exe) and it should work.

Cant get the control panel icon to work, also having problems getting icons to change the task bar icon without changing anything else. I want to have task bar icons set to token light and everything else set to token dark. But it doesn't work, if it isn't possible you should change the check boxes when installing icons. Also would love to see some more icons for token in here. Also thanks for the update that fixed the CCleaner icon :)

Sorry for double post when changing a icon (im using Photoshop as a example) it wont change the task bar icon to token light when i have all check-boxes ticked apart from start menu. However it will change if i pin it to the task bar but it goes away when i unpin it again.
