    In the yellow box is Windows 10 Forums pinned from(in order) Chrome, IE and Edge(which has a live tile and gives "some" live site updates),.

    If you have another custom icon(.ico) you can customize the icon by going to:
    C:\Users\YourNameHere\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    And right clicking the icon, open properties then browse to where ever your custom icon is stored, and change the default icon,.

    Did that but no changes on start menu, if pin it to task bar then its the new icon ?
    Since it opens crome I'm guessing it can't be change.Not sure why it does on taskbar


    Does anyone know if you can make web site icon with TileCreator ?
