How to extract these tiny, little icons from WinEplorer (e.g.the blue "e" for *.html files) ?

In WinExplorer each file extension has an tiny. little icon associated with it (e.g. all *.html files
the little blue "e" for the Internet Explorer).

How can I get/extract such a little icon as a stand-alone image?

Google for 'Icon extractor' -there's tons of freeware apps that can
extract and save icons from DLL/EXE files. The icon you want is embedded
in IEXPLORE.EXE or SHELL32.DLL.

You want what's called a "Resource Editor". I imagine you can find a free
one via Goggle but it usually and I assume still does come with what's
called a "compiler', e.g. a tool a programmer uses to change source code
into machine readable form (program). This type of editior will let you
examine all the resources included in the file (exe, dll, or whatever),
change them, extract them etc.

Another way would be to press PrtScreen key on keyboard to capture image of
the current display to the clipboard. Paste that into a new image in your
favorite image editing program and crop everything except the icon. Save the
result.

I haven't allowed it to but Picasa will catalogue all the images on your
computer if you allow it to.
You will also find loads of graphics in the temp internet files.

Get IcoFx - free icon editor, Google for source.

Open IcoFx

Open Windows Explorer

Navigate to C:\Windows\IE7 (or the folder for whatever version you
have), You may need to select "Show Hidden Files" in WE Tools | View.

Drag IExplore.exe from Windows Explorer to IcoFx & drop.

Select the appropriate image - the big icon is usually the first &
already selected.

Click on Extract

Modify & save to a file.

You can get the embedded icon from any file in this way.

You can use ResourceHacker (freeware) to extract icons from most programs.

And then use an image editor like IrfanView (freeware) to convert and/or
resize the image.
