Hi guys, yes I am aware of how to pin apps with custom icons onto the taskbar, however I don't combine my taskbar hence everytime I launch the pinned app (eg. chrome), it will always go back to its default icon, defeating the purpose of a custom icon. So I was wondering if anyone knows how to keep the custom icon even when the app is running? I've personally seen this happen so it should be possible hmm.gif hmm.gif

Here's a picture to show my issue Attached Image

Thanks

Heya, is there a Chrome shortcut on your desktop right now?

1. Unpin the Current Chrome button from taskbar.
2. Change the Chrome's icon from the desktop shortcut.
i. Right click the desktop shortcut
ii. Click on Properties
iii. Click on Change Icon
iv. Find the Personal Icon you want
3. Pin the Chrome shortcut to the taskbar.
4. Click on Chrome, see if it uses the new personalised icon.

I just tried something like this just now, it worked for me.
