.dll files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm not the best with computers but I do know my way around somewhat. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and I'm having issues opening some of my .dll files. It keeps prompting me to select the program I would like to use in order to open these files and in all honestly I have no idea. I have tried to do some research on my owe, however each article I read give me a different suggestion. What I thought was going to be an easy fix is most definitely not the case. At this point I'm more confused than before I started and i have no idea where to go go from here or which article is giving me the correct information. I would greatly appreciate any help.

    Thank you for your time.

  • What are you trying to do with these DLL files?

    More importantly what are you trying to do as a goal?

    It is very unusual for an end user to be mucking about with DLL files. Generally you don't need to know they exist.

  • It sounds silly, I realize that. I downloaded some new icons to better organize my computer and some of these were sent in .dll format. I can't open or view them. Getting ready to start a new job the more organized I get the better my business will succeed.

    Your question is not a scripting question.

    You cannot use a DLL for an Icon but you can reference a DLL when using the system t set an icon for a program.

  • Thanks for posting but as jrv said, this is not a scripting related question.

    For Windows shortcuts you should probable search for .ico files.

    Good luck with this.
