What is an .ICO file?

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

Graphic designers usually create ICO icons for programs, websites, and print or digital artwork. 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 many of them.
