    Edge Icon on Desktop and Taskbar


    The Icon to Microsoft Edge seems to have changed to a white "e" on a blue background. I'm sure it just used to be a blue "e" on a transparent background.

    How would I go about changing it back?

    Many thanks.

    Edge icon has as far as I know always been white stylised letter E on blue background (left in screenshot below), Internet Explorer icon ( right in screenshot) blue on transparent background.

    I did recreate the shortcut to Edge on the desktop having removed it when first upgrading to WIN 10.

    Even when I pin it to taskbar it is still the white "e" on blue background.

    How do I change it so both desktop and taskbar show the blue "e" on transparent background?
