It has straightforward options for carrying out this task and can be used even by beginners.
Portable tool with a simple GUI
The entire program's wrapped in a single .exe file that you can copy to a preferred directory on the disk or to a USB flash drive, in order to directly run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.
It doesn't change Windows registry settings, create files on the disk without your permission, or need DLLs to run. A basic file deletion is enough to remove it.
When it comes to the interface, AH Icon Extractor has a small window with two large buttons for opening files and saving icons.
Extract and save icons
After indicating an item using the file browser, the tool identifies and loads its icon in the main window with its original sized, stretched, and zoomed in.
In the following step, all you have to do is pick an output directory, filename and format. The icons can be saved as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, ICO, GIF or DIB graphic files. Afterward, you can open them in your image viewer to inspect results. There are no other notable options available.
