Display PDF icon in Sharepoint 2010



In sharepoint 2010 we will not get the PDF symbol as type for PDF files. This looks odd. To avoid this follow the below steps.

1)

Download a 16X16 icon image for PDF. And paste this icon image in the SharePoint server inside the below given path of folder.

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES\






2)

Open the DOCICON.xml file from the XML folder .

Path: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML\

Open in Notepad.




  
3)


Inside the DOCICON file find the below </ByExtension> and update this

<Mapping Key="pdf" Value="iconPDF.gif"/>

above the <ByExtension>







4)

Reset the IIS. And see the results for PDF icons.
