Starting in Office 2013, the Outlook icon changed color. It is now annoyingly similar to the Word icon. Can I get the old one back?

    So your question is, how to change an application's icon? – duDE Jul 14 '16 at 14:58
  • No, I want an icon that fits the theme. – Jammin4CO Jul 14 '16 at 15:01

    Firstly, downvoters have a duty to suggest improvements. Secondly, snarky comments are unwelcome. It's quite obvious here that @Jammin4CO is asking to change the icon of Outlook. Not of any application, specifically for Outlook. If there is a method that works for any application, that would do, but if it only works for Outlook, then that is fine too. Hence not the same question. – Robino Aug 8 '17 at 9:34

Found an image on google, make the outside transparent(attached), then ran it through an ico converter online. Make a shortcut on the desktop to Outlook. Changed the icon to the one I made. Found Outlook in the start menu and right click opened location. Removed the old one and dragged in the one I made. TaDa!
