Themes will change all the icons in WinRar - from the buttons to the file icons. :)

Get reshacker and start patching resources in WinRAR.exe and RarExt.dll

TuneUp Styler has an option to do it...goto System Elements>File Types and then select RAR archives...browse the desired icon and apply.

As I've said, using different themes changes the filetype icons as well... :blink:

Download a theme, edit it to put your icon in it and apply.

Then U can try this..! Use Microangelo Librarian and import the WINRAR.exe n change the icon file n everything will work as u intended..! But it is payware..! Couldn find a freeware alternative :)

I have many tools on my PC. But once one of them was luckily used. It saved all my time and data. Moreover this application might help in any question in my humble opinion - fix a .rar file.
