Solid Edge program icons and Solid Edge documents icons

It is my opinion that Solid Edge program and Solid Edge documents deserves better icons.

 

We are in 2015 and the old Window NT 4 icons are still there.

 

About the documents we already have new icons in the menù "new" that could be easily be adopted by all Solid Edge documents.

 

For Solid Edge itself what about to make a user contest ?

Agree, and I see no reason why the icons in the New menu cannot be used as file icons in Explorer, the former being cool ones with shadows.

Registry hacks and some utilities exist which allow chaging icons for file types:

Never thought about the file icons, but you're right, they do look a little dated.  I'd actually like to see he little symbol enlarged and replace the sheet of paper behind it.  Look at Autocad's icon for DWG or Adobe's icon for PDF.  They brand the entire icon, not just the corner...
