How do i change the library icon on the taskbar?


How do i change that i icon? I know that I can change the other icons by making a shortcut on the desktop then right-clicking Properties->Change Icon
but it dosent seem to work with the library icon. Is there a way to change it, or am i stuck with the default library icon

You can just right click on it on the taskbar, then right click on where it says Windows Explorer, then properties, change icon, browse to where you have your icon you want to use is at, select it, then Ok/apply. Probably will have to either log on or off, or reboot.
