    how do i change the srt icon.


    ok, ive tried a few things but i cant even find the .srt file type extension in the file associations.
    i have windows 8 manager and its pretty simple to change an icon for a filetype,
    the trouble is i cannot see the srt extension in the list.
    i want to change it from a generic blank page file icon

    update,
    try as i mite i couldnt get the srt files to change so i have set them to open with my media player "slash pro"
    , so in a movie folder i have a movie thumbnail and a large splash pro icon that is the srt file, so at a glance i can see its an srt.
    crappy workaround but i guess its similar to when i use windows 7 an srt file has a small page icon with wmc logo on it.

    @boobah

    This is how you can change it with an Subtitle Editor...

    First Download this subtitleedit Click image for larger version

    Anyone either Portable or Installer

    Then associate SRT files with it.

    Now open this "filetypesman.zip" (or download from here http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/filetypesman.zip)

    Then RUN AS ADMIN that program.

    Find .srt after loading extension list (Find ctrl+F) then Right Click and Edit Selected File Type (or press F2)

    Then change default Icon, and we've done !
