    How to change Chrome internet shortcut icons


    Hi guys, I will try to explain in as much detail about exactly what I am trying to do with minimum confusion.

    I have 3 chrome internet shortcut icons on my desktop which lead to Netflix, Hulu and Youtube.

    I would like to change these 3 shortcuts (from the chrome icon) to display a Netflix, Hulu and Youtube icon (respectively)

    I already have files to replace the original chrome shortcut icon with, I just cannot figure out how to do it

    I have been searching far too long for such a little change, please help

    Thank you essenbe, this is not exactly what I wanted to do, but it will actually work better

    What I did was create folders with the N, H, and Yt icons and put shortcuts to the windows store applications as well as chrome shortcuts.

    Right click the shortcut select Properties then under the "Web Document" tab you should see a change Icon button.
