Best Free Windows 64-bit Icon Tool

Iconoid

SillySol's Iconoid allows you to change the colour of text associated with your desktop icons. You can also save and restore the position of desktop icons and, optionally, hide and restore icons by clicking on the desktop.

In order to use Iconoid to change the colour of text you must first turn off drop shadows for icon text.  This must be done via Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, and then click on the Settings button under Performance.  Right clicking on Computer, and then choosing Properties, will only change settings until you logoff or the PC is rebooted.

IcoFX

IcoFX has become a commercial product but the free version remains available although it is unsupported.

IcoFX "has a wealth of tools and is equipped with more than 40 image effects. … The program allows you to create icons for your programs, setup files, or favicons for your website or blog. It also allows you to convert your favorite images to icons, or icons to images. Conversion between Macintosh and Windows icons are supported. Other features include supporting Vista icons with PNG compression, true color, transparency (alpha channel) and batch processing capability. IcoFX allows you to create icon libraries, extract and patch icons inside the executable files. However, on some executable files which I tried, the former seems work better than the latter." (Best Free Icon Editor and Replacer)

Can not find InkScape 64-bit... only 32-bit version available from supplied link...

If you want 64 bit version, you can try new 0.91-pre2, or 0.48.5 from www.partha.com. They keep (and build) 64 bit builds of graphic software.

Are there going to be any new 64bit applications or is this page no longer worked?

by Remah on 31. December 2014 - 6:59  (120343)

Yes, there will be updates and further applications and categories added. Unfortunately, I am not available to work on this at present. I am a volunteer and have had to devote my time to other work so I am only answering questions at the moment. When my other project work is finished then I will be updating this article.

AUDACITY is a 32-bit application! (it will run under 64-bit Windows, but the application is not native 64-bit!). Please correct this. Thx.
