What is a .ICO file?

ico file icon

ICO files are used to store one or more icon images with varying dimensions, ranging from 16x16 to 256x256, and color depths. The icons are typically created to represent a computer-related element, such as a program, file, folder, or action in an application. They are commonly used in Windows and can be found in program and system directories.

ICO icons are usually created by graphic designers and packaged with applications by developers. If you work with graphics professionals or develop programs for Windows you may receive an ICO file from a co-worker. You may also encounter ICO files if you enjoy customizing Windows themes, video games, and other programs. You can use File Viewer Plus to open, edit, and convert an ICO file. You can also batch convert ICO files to other image formats if you receive a large number of them.
