hey man, great program thanks a lot!
but ive got a question: see i changed all my icons to black ones and now the colours which used to be shown when opening a program ("Color Hot-track" i believe) is gone. is there a way to assign a colour to a programm manually ?
maybe you have a trick for me or maybe you can even write a program like that, i think it would be a neat addition to this one :))

Sorry, but I believe there's no way, because the color is based on the icons main color.

Thank you !

If you haven't made a backup before, than there is only the chance to do this:
Please make a backup in W7 Superbar Icon Changer, because I'm not sure, that this works to 100 %.

1. Open all pinned applications.
2. Unpin them all, but let them open !
3. Pin them back to the superbar.
4. Open W7 Superbar Icon Changer.
5. Create a backup by clicking the 'Create Backup' button.
6. Click 'Show Backuplist' to show the backuplist.
7. Find the backup you have made just this minute. (Look at your time and compare it with the backup name.)
8. Select it and click 'Recover selected date' to restore the backup.
9. Now, if you don't see your icons in the original state, I made something wrong or you.
^^

Hoping, that this will help !

Sadly, when the programs name is too long, afte chosing it from the expandable list an error window appears, and you can't change the icon.

It says something like: (its a translation, so not 100% acurate)

"Error: Demanded range extends tabs end"

You have to bring the photos in the .ico format. That means you have to find a program, that can convert other photos into Icons.
The later release of W7 Superbar Icon Changer 1.0.1.0 allows you to take other photos as icons. ;)
