taskbar icons

has anyone found a way to change the icons of apps that have been pinned to the start menu other than reshacking the exe?

Hello Garbanzo,

You could create a shortcut of the exe file, then change the icon of the shortcut and pin that shortcut to the Start Menu.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're welcome Garbanzo. Just do not move or delete the new shortcut afterwards, or the pinned icon the Start Menu will not work anymore.
