I work with autistic children and i have a bunch of VBscripts set up to say things through the speakers like "I want juice". I was wonder it it was possible to associate a photo with these files so when they are viewed as thumbnails you would see a picture of a Juice box. Other scripts would be "I want cookie" or "I want Toy".

Below is an example of the script i have in a notepad with .vbs extension:

Dim Message, sapi
message="I Want Juice"
Set sapi=Createobject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.speak message

Hi Daysaved, welcome to TSF.

You need to re-size the photo to about 20x20 pixels, or any standard icon resolution.
Save the file as .ico

You can now right click your file, go to 'Properties'. Under the 'shortcut' tab click 'Change Icon'. Browse to your newly created .ico file and select it.

This should work for all types of files.
