  • You can use gif, bmp, and jpg files as custom icons. You can also use png file types, however it requires a little work to get them appear properly. A good place to find icons is to use the image section of google; http://images.google.ca/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi after you perform your search you can filter the images so that only small images appear. You may find an icon similar to what you want, you can always edit it to suit your needs. I prefer using Gimp as it is free and has a lot of options.
