How can I see which DLLs included in Windows contain icons?

As an IT administrator, you may be interested in learning more about the Windows Dynamic Link Library (DLL) files that contain icons. These icons are used to represent different features of the Windows operating system. They provide a visual representation of various system elements, such as programs, folders, and files. In order to see which DLLs contain icons, you will need to use the Windows operating system's built-in command line utility, the Resource Monitor.

The Resource Monitor is a tool that is built into the Windows operating system that provides detailed information about the system's currently running processes, services, and applications. It can also be used to view the list of DLLs that contain icons. To access the Resource Monitor, you will need to open the Run dialogue box by pressing the Windows key + R. Then, type in \resmon\ and press Enter.

Once the Resource Monitor window opens, you will need to select the \DLLs\ option from the left-hand side of the window. This will open the list of all the DLLs that are currently loaded in the system. The list will also show which DLLs contain icons. To identify which DLLs contain icons, look for the icon column. If there is an icon in the column, that means that the DLL contains an icon.

If you want to view the icons contained in a particular DLL, you can click on the DLL and select the \View\ option from the drop-down menu. This will open a new window that displays all the icons contained within the DLL. You can then scroll through the list of icons and select the one you would like to view.

The Resource Monitor is a useful tool for any IT administrator who needs to view which DLLs contain icons. By using the Resource Monitor, you can easily identify which DLLs contain icons and view the icons contained within them. This can be particularly useful if you need to find a specific icon for a program, folder, or file.
