    1)To change the icons on the desktop go to control panel>>display>>desktop>>customize desktop>>general>>change icon.
    2)To change an icon of the particular program/application right click the icon to be changed >>properties>>shortcut>>change icon.
    3)To change an icon on the taskbar use procedure 2).
