You can always download a fancy icon maker from the internet and make a icon from your picture, but what if you want to make a icon without using any sorts of extra softwares? I am going to teach you how to make a windows folder icon using a single and powerful native tool: Paint.
How to make a icon?
  • Go ahead and fireup MSPaint. How to start paint?
  • Open up the picture that you want to convert into icon.
  • Go to File>"Save As" and select the place where you want to save it.
  • On the filename section, change the file name into 'icon.ico' and "Save as type" into '24-bit Bitmap'
  • Press Save and you are done.
  • If you are on Vista, you might have to rename the file again into 'icon.ico' again. Watch the video.
How to implement the icon on a folder?

  • Go to "Customize" tab and then select "Change Icon"
  • Browse to the place where you saved the icon file and select it. Press OK and then VOILA!You are done.

Have you ever wanted to surf the internet without anyone tracking what Ip-address you are using, or send send prank mails to friends without letting them know where the mail is coming from? This one teaches you how to use proxies to surf the internet anonymously.
Things to remember
  • First off, search for Free Proxy server and select the one that you want to use. In this case, I am using Proxy4free.com.
  • Some of the servers might not be working 24/7 so you might have to choose a different server.
  • You will experience slow internet since you are connecting to a server that is far from where you actually live.
  • Some of the websites do not appreciate you using proxy servers while surfing them, so check their privacy policy, before surfing the internet.
Lets get started...

Internet Explorer
  • Go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Lan Settings.
  • Check the box on "Use proxy server for your LAN".
  • Copy the proxy server IP from and port from Proxy4free.com and paste them on respective boxes.
  • Press OK and you are done.
Firefox
  • Go to Tools>Options>Network>Settings.
  • Check the box that says "Manual Proxy Settings"
  • Copy the proxy server IP from and port from Proxy4free.com and paste them on respective boxes.
  • Press OK and you are done.
Gooogle Chrome
  • Click the little tool button on top right of the browser.
  • Go to Options>Under The Hood> and under the "Network">Change Proxy SettingsConnections>Lan Settings.Check the box on "Use proxy server for your LAN".
