I have recently upgraded to Win 7 from XP. I have an old DOS program which I have got to work OK on Win 7 and created a desktop icon to start the program. The icon is a 'blank' folder outline. Under 'Properties', 'General' the icon is 'blank'. Under 'Properties', 'Program', 'Change Icon' & 'Browse' I was able to change the icon to a suitable one (as used in XP), and this now shows as the changed/required icon, but ONLY on the 'Properties' page. When returning to the 'General' page, the icon does not change and remains 'blank'.
Is there any way to 'force' the icon to change to the one I would like that shows under the 'Program' page?
