I have created windows shortcuts to web sites I often visit, I have then manually set the icon of the shortcut to the logo of the website

enter image description here

These are web shortcuts where the shortcut target looks like this (using chrome as the browser)

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app=https://www.youtube.com --kiosk

When I add these shortcuts to programs

1) run -> shell:programs

2) paste copy of shortcut into folder

They appear in the list of programs in the start bar with the correct icon and look great

enter image description here

But when I pin these to the start menu as a tile, it doesn't respect the icon and instead uses the chrome icon

enter image description here

How can I fix this? Why does it not use the assigned icon of the shortcut?
