    How do I change the icon symbol/picture on desktop to my own jpg?


    I know that if you go under properties there are a lot of icons to choose from. I want a picture that I downloaded since I accidently deleted the .ico file in my download folder. It's a shortcut to a program. Of course I emptied the recycle bin!

    Redownload the picture you deleted, then go to one of the many websites which change jpegs to icon files. Put your icon in a place which is safe, then do the change icon procedure which you know about, choosing your icon file.
