comment Can you change the icon of a pinned IE 9 web application? And how do you do it?
@Rick Just a guess but maybe Windows has cached the image incorrectly and doesn't want to give that up. You could try removing the thumbnails cache and see if that helps: superuser.com/questions/234864/…

@Rick I'm also using Win 7 SP1. Making the change to the file is easy (make sure you only have one IconFile and one IconIndex entry), but getting the icon to refresh is a bit cumbersome. Make sure you are remembering to run the shortcut once copied to the desktop, before re-pinning. It seems the Windows shell will cache the old icon until IE re-reads the .website file.

For a preview of icons (and their index) contained in the Windows 7 shell32.dll go here: img145.imageshack.us/img145/6536/win7shell32dllicons.jpg

The solution discussed in the link refers to the website tab of the pinned shortcut properties dialog. This worked for the IE9 beta but in the final release the website tab is no longer visible.
