Edit Notepad?

Well I use my icon pack for all the programs I pin to the taskbar. But with notepad, I edited the icon of it using Restorator just like all my other programs. but when I open a .txt document n such, it opens it in a program that I didnt pin to the taskbar with the default icon. any ideas on why that is happening?
