Since I have set Chrome as default browser, the default icon for .URL files has changed to Chrome icon. I'd like to change it to another icon for .URL files (i.e. not the Chrome icon), while keeping Chrome as default browser.
I have tried the usual way in the registry:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.URL\ (Default key) => "InternetShortcut"
then I looked:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\DefaultIcon\ (Default key) => "C:\Windows\System32\url.dll,5"
but it's not this icon: the icon used by Windows explorer is Chrome's icon. Why? Where/how to change this default icon for .URL files?
Background: I use .URL files a lot as shortcuts for web pages, I can move them on desktop, move them in folders like regular files. I know some people will tell: "use browser bookmarks instead", etc. but I really enjoy working with .URL files as bookmarks.
Note: this topic didn't work for me.
