  1. Download PDF icons from:
    http://www.adobe.com/misc/linking.html (16×16)
  1. Run “IISreset /stop” on the webserver and application server to shutdown the SharePoint sites.
  2. Copy the icon image into:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES
    (Remember to do this on web and application servers)
  1. Edit “docicon.xml” in this catalog:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML
    (Remember to do this on web and application servers)
  1. Add this line in the same sections as the other file¬†extensions¬†are: <Mapping Key=”pdf” Value=”pdficon_small.gif” />
  2. Run “IISreset /start” on the webserver and application server to start up the SharePoint sites again.
