To change the audio icon:
By default, an audio file will appear as a speaker icon in the slide. If you want, you can change the icon to a different picture.
- Select the audio file, then click the Format tab.
- Click the Change Picture command.
- The Insert Pictures dialog box will appear. Click Browse to select a file from your computer. Alternatively, you can use the online image search tools to locate an image online. In our example, we'll search using the phrase music note.
- Locate and select the desired picture, then click Insert.
- The icon will change to the new picture.
