outlook Icon not showing

I have a user who seems to have lost the icon for Outlook 2010 and the icon shows up on the system trey and everywhere else but on the desktop it shows as a little folder and not the normal outlook icon. Almost like a bad PDF look instead of the Microsoft logo for outlook? I am guessing this is a windows thing?

Is it really the link to Outlook, not its folder? If so, just change the icon in the link property.

where is that changed? I looked at the properties and do not see how or where to change the look?

There are three buttons above the bottom. The one in the middle changes the icon.

You could go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14 (or where ever your MS Office installation is) and create a new shortcut on the desktop!

I'm surprised that you do not see the Change Icon option when you right click on the old icon, then select Properties.

we use office 2010. I was also surprised. That is why I asked where it was. I will go back to her later and check again. Thanks.

I will try this as soon as she gets in. Just weird, never saw this where the icon shows everywhere but the desktop, just weird.

Each shortcut can have its own icon, so why not?

Thanks all. It did work and I did not have to hit the registry but that was also a great tip. Thanks all.
