Changed the icons for the shortcuts to I use often: shortcuts on desktop & in Start Menu.
Have no shortcuts pinned to taskbar.
Whenever I open a program the taskbar shows the program's default icon instead of the one I've got in the desktop shortcuts and start menu.
Many ways online show you how to change an already
-pinned-to-the-taskbar program's icon. https://www.google.com.tw/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&es_th=1&ie=UTF-8#q=change+taskbar+icons
Need something different: how can I change the icon which the taskbar uses for a program that IS NOT
pinned to the taskbar already. So that, if I start IE, which is not pinned to my task bar, instead of the blue letter e logo showing there, I can define my preferred icon.
