Windows 7: Change Minecraft Icon? How?

Change Minecraft Icon? How?

So, at first I couldn't change an Icon of Minecraft, then I created a shortcut by Right Clicking then I changed the Icon.

I pinned it to my Taskbar. Another Window opened (of Minecraft) with Default Icon.

I used Resource Hacker to change Icon Group/1001/0


"Minecraft Icon", it was meant to say "Another Minecraft Window Opens" so basically that black minecraft icon is a shortcut to Minecraft on the right.

Icon I am trying to change it to is attatched.

It's the only Icon I can't change

Basically I want to make the black icon be the only window and open Minecraft in the black icon window only.

The right/default icon is the one that the Minecraft game window opens from

All help is appreciated.

It may be in a .dll or .exe in the games program folder.

Well in AppData/Roaming/.minecraft there is a Minecraft Folder.

In there it contrains additional folders/files.

Download and install Download IconViewer then you can right click on the .dll and .exe and go to properties then go to the icon tab And look for the icon.

I can't find any .dll's. And if I open the exe with Icon Viewer it already shows the Icon I changed it to.

Try this when you have both icons on the taskbar pin the 1 on the right to the taskbar by right clicking on it pin to taskbar then right click on it and right click on the game and go to properties > change icon > look at the address field it may show you where it's at.
