customise taskbar icon?

Well, on the lower left side of the taskbar, there are icon that make it convenient for you to go in for example "Internet explorer"... How do i customize the icon that appear here? I would like a "desktop page" icon and a "my document" icon to appear here.

Hello GradeAbra,

You could use the tutorial below to pin the C:\Users\(user-name)\My Documents folder to the taskbar.

Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder

As for a "desktop page" icon, it depends on what you want it to open or do since there are different ones for this. You already have a "Show desktop" button on the far right side of the taskbar if that was what you meant.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks i did not realize there is a "Show desktop" icon at the far right.

Regarding the 2nd question, i still cannot pin the sub folder to the taskbar, i tried to create a new folder in my music folder like what is written there but no way i can pin it. How can i pin the whole "My music" folder there instead?

You could also just select the C:\Users\(user-name)\My Documents folder to pin directly.
