Hello vcq,

That looks like it's for Windows Explorer. See if this may help:
  • Right click on the taskbar icon to open it's Jump List menu.
  • Right click on Windows Explorer in the Jump List.
  • Right click on Properties in it's context menu.
  • In the Shortcut tab, click on the Change Icon button, select the folder icon, and OK out to apply.
  • Sometimes you may need to repeat this 2-3 times to take affect.
