Hello Jer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, that's exactly why you are getting the icon since you are using explorer.exe in your trick. If you use the tutorial Richard posted above instead to pin a folder of your choice, you will be able to use any icon that you like instead.

What folder are you wanting to pin?
