ExtensionSmallImg What is .ico file?

The files that contain the .ico file extension are image container files that store icons that are used by different Mac applications like the Mac folder icons, file icons and program icons on the desktop. This format stores two bitmaps and the image mask that is used to create the icon. The ICO files can be modified to create custom icons for a Mac interface. An ICO file is similar to a Mac cursor (.CUR) file, but has a different identification byte in the header.
