ICON File Type


An Icon file is an extension created by the Windows operating system to create shortcuts of various types. These Icons can be used as icons of any website, folder, application or anything else. ICON files are mostly used on Microsoft Windows operating systems. They are named with a .icn extension and not .icon extension because of the limitations on the size of the icon for that specific platform. As ICON files are just shortcuts, they cannot contain any images or other objects that would only take up space in a regular shortcut file.
