Change a default icon in the Windows 10 taskbar
« on: December 13, 2018, 03:51:51 PM »
Hello All,
I place numerous icons in the Windows 10 taskbar, that area at the bottom of the screen.  I group the most often used icons to the left.  Icons for lesser used programs are on the right.

Two frequently used programs are Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word.  Since the two icons are quite similar, I sometimes click on one when I really wanted the other. 

One obvious solution would be to separate them, placing several other icons between them.  What is the fun in that?
I decided to create my own icon for Word and substitute it for the default icon.
I then created a short video reminding me and others of the steps that I took.
