4. Press OK to close the Resource Editor and select File > Save File As to save the changes you've just made to the target file. If warned that the image size has changed, click Yes to update the file size.

Menu IDs cannot be edited. These values are hard coded into the target file. Changing them is likely to cause the modified program to crash.
