Where are Desktop shortcut icon pictures stored?

Posted: 01-26-2009, 06:21 AM
When I send a shortcut to the Desktop from Internet Explorer an icon is
created which usually has a unique picture displayed. The problem is that if
I want to use this icon picture for some other icon, I don't know where it is
stored. Presumably it is somewhere under \Documents and Settings for the
user that I am logged in as, but I have been unable to find it there. It
must be stored somewhere in order for it to be displayed on the Desktop each
time I log in.
