Icon images on desktop

I have recently installed new programmes but when the shortcuts show on the desktop they have my default picture editor as icon and not the icon belonging to the programme.

How can I make sure that new programmes show their own icon pictures?

Thanks

Phil

The change icon button is grayed out and cannot be accessed.
