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.
