librarie tutorial, by brink, did i miss anything?

Hey guys i followed the guide here
Libraries Icon - Change Default Icon

And it worked great
tho one of the icons, never changed for me, i checked and dubble checked the images and the guide still that last icon never changed for me, so i must have missed something..

Why is it that the .ico file never changed on the 3rd icon, but the 1st and the 2nd icon changed fine.
What did i miss? i really hate that 3rd icon, so damn ugly have to change it !!!!

Thx in advance

From what I see in the tutorial you didn't miss anything, but I just woke up!

Methinks the icons for the taskbar are kept or obtained from a different folder.

if you right click the libraries icon on the taskbar and then to change icon, can you find the one you want that way?

Critical point.

When you right click the taskbar icon to change it; browse to the folder that already contains the ones you are using for the main Library. Then pick one from there.

After you rt ck on #3 you see this
Quote:
Windows Explorer
unpin this program from taskbar
rt. ck. on windows explorer that will open up context to properties. ck on properties.

If it is the one you want, then yes, pick it, but it should be instantaneous once you click on apply. If not then restart, and see if it takes effect.

This may make it clearer:

Start where it says:

Sure, just go up to the scales in the upper right corner of one of my posts usually the one that helped the most, and click on that. you don't have to put in a comment, but it's courtesy to do so.
Then click on I approve.

It will then show on your User CP page.

Easiest way to get there is to go to the top of the page you'll see User CP to the right of center.

Happy to have you aboard xTL enjoy your stay here at W7F
