    Show desktop icon

    Drag the Show Desktop icon into a Notepad window. You now should see:

    [Shell]
    Command=2
    IconFile=explorer.exe,3
    [Taskbar]
    Command=ToggleDesktop

    Now replace the third line with something like

    IconFile="C:\path\toyour\icon.ico"

    click File > Save

    That's it. Change will take effect after next reboot.


    Internet Explorer icon on desktop

    This can be changed in the registry at

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}\DefaultIcon

    Backup (export) the key, then replace "shdoclc.dll,-190" with the full path to your icon "C:\path\toyour\icon.ico". Make sure to include the quotes.
