  1. How to change Chrome internet shortcut icons


    Hi guys, I will try to explain in as much detail about exactly what I am trying to do with minimum confusion.

    I have 3 chrome internet shortcut icons on my desktop which lead to Netflix, Hulu and Youtube.

    I would like to change these 3 shortcuts (from the chrome icon) to display a Netflix, Hulu and Youtube icon (respectively)

    I already have files to replace the original chrome shortcut icon with, I just cannot figure out how to do it

    I have been searching far too long for such a little change, please help *Sad *Banghead

    :)

  2. Pinning My Visual Studio to start gives a Google Chrome icon

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience caused to you. Let me assist you.

    Provide us with the below details for better clarity on the issue.

    1. How exactly are you trying to pin the program to the Start?

    2. Is the issue specific to Home My Visual Studio application?

    3. Are you trying to pin the program or internet shortcut?

    If you create an internet shortcut, which is saving a web link as a shortcut on the computer, it is created with the
    default browser icon. So if you are trying to add an internet shortcut, the icon will be a Google Chrome logo, as it is your default browser.

    I suggest you to try uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome and check if it helps.

    Refer the link below for steps to reinstall a program.

    (Applies to Windows 10)

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Internet Shortcuts turned into a Globe instead of site icon

    The internet shortcut is the icon for the website. for example If I create a shortcut to a YouTube Video I would like to return to at a later date, the icon shows as a "globe". For example all of my YouTube video shortcuts changed to a Globe. This does
    not occur on all icons.

    How do I recover the correct icon?

  5. Thank you essenbe, this is not exactly what I wanted to do, but it will actually work better

    What I did was create folders with the N, H, and Yt icons and put shortcuts to the windows store applications as well as chrome shortcuts.

    Right click the shortcut select Properties then under the "Web Document" tab you should see a change Icon button.
