    1- To add icons to your menu items, you have to use some windows API functions like SetMenuItemBitmaps() and others. Or you can search for a third party control that helps you in adding icons.

    2- Icons in programs are resources linked with your exe. To add more icons to your exe, add a resource file and put as many icons as you want.

    3- Use the ExtractIcon() API function

    There's also a nice shareware program called MicroAngelo that you can use to extract icons from other programs, and also make your own.

    Take care,
