Windows 7: Can't Change Icon

Can't Change Icon

Hey guys.
I can't change my Steam icon on the taskbar. I right click on it and go to the properties and all. But "Change Icon" is greyed out. This is the only icon on my taskbar I can't change. All the rest allow me to change.
Anyone know why, or the fix?

Try changing the icon in the programs folder for steam and see if that updates the taskbar one.

Hmm, I had to pin it to the start menu, and change it there. :S
It's fixed though.

Edit: I tried changing it in the directory folder it's located in, that didn't work.
But it's fixed. ^^

For future reference you can use stardock iconpacker to change any exe icon
and this will change all other links to that exe including the taskbar

I changed my FireFox exe and this is how it looks
