Featured iconProgram Manager
If you dig deep enough, you’ll find this icon even in Windows XP, but it is far more likely you remember it back from Windows 3.x times. Program Manager (along with its sidekick, File Manager) replaced earlier MS-DOS Executive, only to be superseded by Explorer in Windows 95.
