Thumbico is a combination of an icon extraction and viewing tool, with a thumbnail viewer and creator. The program is tiny, a 28KB download, and unsurprisingly there's no installation required.
In the news
If you work with icons and screenshots on a daily basis like I do, you'll want to pay attention to this new application from Aurelitec. ... This application was a dream come true for me and it may be for you just as well.
Rocky Bytes Score: 5 Stars - It Rocks!
Conclusion: Thumbico is a useful little program that can successfully import, display and allow minimal editing of embedded program icons, graphics and other file types which have images contained within them. These can be re-sized, converted and saved.

Verdict: A likeable and easy-to-use icon viewer and extractor. Sure, it's basic, but it does more than enough to be useful - and way more than we'd expect from a 54KB executable.
I really like this thumbnail extractor software. It is user friendly and extracting thumbnails of desktop shortcuts, EXE files, or some other application is very simple.
