Icons, What am I Missing?

Relatively new to dotnet so bear with me if this is obvious.

In the course of my career, I've assembled a collection of icons to use
with my apps. Most of these are 32x32, 256 or 16x16, 16.

In VS6, I could assign the same icon to forms and the application. VS
would squish or stretch icons as needed for title bars, desktops, etc.

In VS2003, I'm having no luck. I import an icon into the editor.
Right clicking outside the image shows it to be 32x32,256. I attempt
to add a 16x16,256 to the collection and all I get is a blank icon?
Not much of an artist, am I supposed to recreate the icon at 16x16?

Again, forgive me if this is obvious but the help is spotty on this
topic. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Yup, that's the way that it works. One workaround is to go to the larger
icon (the image will be selected) then copy the image, move to the small
icon and paste. Then drag the bottom right corner towards the top left
to resize to the small icon. The results are rarely pretty, but its a
starting point.
