MICROSOFT ACCESS Easter Egg - Pow ! Said Access 2000

1. Create a shortcut to Access 2K (usually it points to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msaccess.exe).
2. right click this shortcut.
3. Click the button "Change Icon..."
4. In this list of possible icons for Access 2K there is one quite irregular to the others.

Maybe we can use this for some game we are developing? :o)

This does work, although, to be pedantic, stage 3 should be "Click 'Properties'".

This also works with other Office programs! Take a look at the icons from Frontpage, they look very cool!

Shortcut. In the box that comes up, under "type the location of the item", type your Access executable path (usually C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msaccess.exe). Replace C: with your local hard disk. The icon looks strange.

It doesn't work with Office XP - the 'change password' button is greyed out, even for shortcuts.

You don't click the 'Change Password' button - you have to click the 'Change Icon' Button.

This is about as much of an egg as "right click the internet explorer button > click rename > type "easter egg" There you have it. Gotta tell ya, this Pow deal is lame.
