Icons for folders

After yesterdays fun with getting my PrintMAster .sig files straightend out the icon on my .sig files is not the printmaster icon but a generic Windows icon. Any way to get the original logo or another graphic on it? I forget how to put an icon on a file...

Thanks....

Right click the shortcut, and click properties. Click change icon. Does the right icon appear there? If so, click it and hit ok. Then ok again. Right click the empty desktop and choose refresh. Icon show up now?
