BatchIconExtractor in action

How to use it?

  • Download BatchIconExtractor.exe and place it on your desktop.
  • Drag and drop a file or a folder on the application icon.
  • All icons from the file or from all files under the given folder are saved to a new folder called "icons". This folder is created in the same folder, where the application resides (Desktop by default).


  • The application is provided as is, without warranty of any kind. Authors are not responsible for any damage.
  • The application is designed for Windows NT4, 2000, XP, and Vista. It will NOT run on Windows 95, 98, or Me.
  • When using the application from command line, specify absolute path to the source file or folder. Relative paths will result in undefined behavior.
  • Files in the destination folders are always overwritten unless they have the readonly flag set.
  • To extract all icons on the whole drive, drag and drop the drive on the application and then choose to scan for icons recursively.


Version 1.0 from September 5th 2005: BatchIconExtractor.exe for Windows NT4, 2000, XP, and Vista.

This program works well, bulk extracts icons from files and saves them inside a folder called icons where you run the program from. I highly recomment. You will need to find somthing else if you wish to select subtypes etc. But i used this as the main extractor with another program searching its icons dir for filtering of subpicture types.
