Windows 7: Canon 7D icon, different from one computer to another

Canon 7D icon, different from one computer to another

Hi there,

I'm trying to figure out why the icon for my Canon 7D looks different on two computers I'm using and how to fix it.

I've attached two screen grabs. How can I fix the icon on one of the two machines in order to get it looking like the nice one?

Thanks for any help!

If it's a link that has the icons displaying differently, then it's a pretty easy fix.
  1. Download the icon:
    The above icon isn't the EXACT icon that you like, but it's a Canon 7D that's very close to the same. Onward:
  2. Right-click the shortcut and click Properties.
  3. Click Open File Location.
  4. Copy the downloaded icon into that directory.
  5. Go back to the shortcut Properties and click Change Icon.
  6. Navigate to the directory from step 4, if necessary, and select the new icon.
  7. Click OK.

Tada! Do this on both machines if you want to have the exact same icon.
