I have one item on my Windows 7 taskbar whose icon is way too small (the rest of them are fine) and I want to change it. However, when I shift-right-click it and select properties, it does not give me the "change icon" option as other items do. Any idea why and how to accomplish this icon change?

It's possible an icon was designed small.

Which icon are you talking about?

If the icon is an EXE and not a shortcut, there is no option for that.

Yes, I'm sure you're right about the icon being designed small. That's why I want to change it. So if one cannot change the icon for an EXE then I guess I'll try to put a shortcut to that EXE on my desktop, change the icon of the shortcut, change the name of the shortcut to include a .EXE extension and then move that to the taskbar.

Your information gave me the idea that I mentioned and it worked.
