How can I change the icon of a Command Prompt icon that's pinned to my Windows 7 taskbar?

I've gone into its properties, selected "Change icon", browsed to the new icon, and pressed "OK". The system acts as Windows always has in that situation, but the icon does not change.

i usually pres Windows+R and type CMD followed by Return to get the. then if I need administrative access from CMD I use sudo for windows
