Change a Pinned to Start Menu's Image: Paint.Dot.Net

Wonderful program, pain.dot.net.

Have shortcut on my desktop that uses a custom icon.

Have pinned the shortcut to my Start Menu, but, it always uses the program's default Logo / Image for the icon. (see attached)

Any way to get the pinned-to-Taskbar shortcut to use my image / icon?  Can't find the path to the image the program is calling.

where is the source of this image?
Thanks!

Yeah, tried that.  Seems like, when it is a tile within the Start Menu, you can't get to the properties.

Hi,

You're both right.  I'm able to change the icon on the Desktop Shortcut.  That works.

However, when you then try to pin the new-icon Desktop Shortcut to the Start Menu it reverts back to the program's default image.  Attached is an illustration.

icon in Start Menu reverts
Put another way - for some reason, for this application, even a customized Desktop Shortcut then pinned to the Start Menu reverts back to the program's original icon.

Thus, my thinking was, if we can find a path to that image, we could switch it out.

How do you see it?

Thanks,

OT
