Change Icon Of Internet Shortcut

Hello. I created an internet shortcut to Facebook on the desktop, and made an ICO file for the logo. However, when I open up Properties, there is no option to Change Icon. Why is that, and how can I fix this?

P.S. My default browser is RockMelt.

you can create another shortcut of your internet launcher icon (firefox/ IE / Whatever you use). Open the properties of the shortcut and add the website in quotations to the end of the target box, after your browser exe.

(example: Target "C:\Program Files\Waterfox\waterfox.exe" "")

Then just change the icon.
