  • On changing the icon....I know to to do it in XP via the File Types Advanced option, but in Vista, I haven't tried (haven't seen a way to do it..but I'll check...



    As for defaulting or adding CDisplay to the list of Recommended programs click on the Browse button in that same window, navigate to where CDisplay.exe is located accept it and the next time you click open with, you will see CDisplay listed.
