    Are you asking about what the OS will show in a list of files?
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    No, I want to change my jar file icon like thunder icon for winamp. Could I change my jar file's icon pack?

    Are you saying that it's not the icon that the OS shows for a file when it displays a list of files in a file explorer program?

    Is this a java programming question
    or a question about how to do something in your OS?

    You can't do that with a standard jar.

    You'll have to wrap your jar in a native executable file.

    IMHO this is overkill for such a small feature, but if you really want to go this route, check out JWrapper.

    Ok Grand Mogul JosAH, I respect to you too. Is there has a rule for giving a title for someone?
