Lol spoon. I got what you meant.

Lonazoa btw, there is no difference from desktop and docks. His problem was he could change the icon on the dock/desktop, but when he opens the program, it looks like the old icon on the taskbar.

So. How do I do this the same? Lonazoa what program did you use to change the icon within the programs you wanted?

Or spoon? I've got the icons I want saved as icons. Which program works best in windows 7 and with minimal resources. I dont need anything extravagent. Just this.

Without pinning it to the taskbar, how could I change the programs icons? I can do it with rocketdock or on my desktop, but when I open the program, on my taskbar it is the old icon. How can I change that one?

Basically since that last post was long. Im looking for the most lightweight program to change icons I already have and put them into the programs I want. So they are my custom icons on the taskbar and desktop etc. Not just desktop

Use irfanview to change them into .ico files and the open the program. right click on it on the taskbar and click properties change the icon to what ever you want. exit it and re open it it should be changed.
