Roasting Icon Extractor is a simple and very effective Icon Extractor. The Roasting Icon Extractor allows users to extract and save the icon of any file on Microsoft Windows. These Icon files can then be used for the icon on any file you want by using my "Roasting Icon Changer." This is one of the easiest projects I made. Anyways, as all ways please enjoy this very useful project!

What is an Icon?

In computing, an icon is a pictogram or ideogram displayed on a computer screen in order to help the user navigate a computer system. The icon itself is a quickly comprehensible symbol of a software tool, function, or a data file, accessible on the system and is more like a traffic sign than a detailed illustration of the actual entity it represents. It can serve as an electronic hyperlink or file shortcut to access the program or data. The user can activate an icon using a mouse, pointer, finger, or recently voice commands. Their placement on the screen, also in relation to other icons, may provide further information to the user about their usage. In activating an icon, the user can move directly into and out of the identified function without knowing anything further about the location or requirements of the file or code.

Icons as parts of the graphical user interface of the computer system, in conjunction with windows, menus and a pointing device (mouse), belong to the much larger topic of the history of the graphical user interface that has largely supplanted the text-based interface for casual use.
