Just noticed that my computer icon has changed to a file type (looks like a piece of paper,lol).Any ideas how I change it back ?

Sorry VoG™, but it didn't work, the icon flashed but came back as it is now.

1. Go to the Control Panel.
2. Choose Appearance and Themes.
3. Double click on Display (this will bring up the Display Properties window).
4. Click on the Desktop tab.
5. Click on Customize Desktop (this will bring up the Desktop Items window).
6. Select the My Computer icon, click Change Icon.

Ok,that's done, what about the computer icon from the start menu.Where it shows devices with removable storage etc,that icon is not right either.

Right click, Properties, Change icon.

Can only rename icon, not change icon.
This is daft, why would it have changed?
