FastIcns is a small application that helps you create and assign new icons to any file or folder you want in just a matter of seconds. You will also be able to save the loaded icons as images and use them later on.

The program comes with a simple and intuitive interface, which is manageable by any user, professional or beginner. When launching the application, a rotating cube will appear where you can place the file or folder you wish to extract icon from.

To help you get a better view at the resulted image, you can configure the tool to rotate it 90 degrees, horizontally or vertically. If you are happy with the results, you can assign the icon to any folder you like directly from the main menu of the program or save the image as a resource fork of a file, with .PNG format, etc.

An advantage of using this simple utility is the fact that it supports batch processing, meaning that you can save icons from as many files and folders as you want at the same time.

Briefly, it's worth trying FastIcns, a reliable solution when it comes to extracting icons from any file or folder and saving the resulted image to use whenever you need.
