Windows 7: Change application associated icon?

Change application associated icon?

Ended up with two similar applications that the OS has given the same icon to.

Right clicked on the second app icon, properties, change icon but the other choice is the same icon and the browse to icons just goes to System32 with all exe and dll files?

Searched this forum for same but didn't come up with a similar thread and OS Help was no help.

P.S. Disregard above. I went to desktop personalize, change icon, copied the path and pasted the path in the browse of the icon's properties and then changed the icon.

I ran a test using today's date as the start assuming I would get zero returns. Yet an image file showed up with a date of 2019. You got any idea how that's possible?

If I change the date of the file in explorer does that change the date that drive search is using or is there some sort of internal date that search is using?

It's likely the digital device used to take the picture had been setup wrong and was tagging the images with 2019 dates.

Of if you mean an actual cd image file.
That would mean the computer's date was set wrong.
