    Default Custom java shortcut icons won't stay

    Hi! I'm having a problem with custom icons. When I create a shortcut from java and change that icon to my custom icon, it will stay for some time but after restarting computer it might just go back to original java icon. Also when i start the program from that shortcut it sometimes just change my icon back to java default icon. This happens in windows 10 and windows XP and with different java versions.

    Does anyone know how to make my icons for java shortcuts permanent?

    Default Re: Custom java shortcut icons won't stay

    What is in the shortcut? What is in the target field of the Properties of the shortcut?
    Does it refer to a jar file or the java.exe program? Are you trying to change the icon for all shortcuts that use the java.exe program?

    What does this have to do with java programming?
    Have you tried asking this question on a forum for the OS that you are working on?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
