How can I change Notepad++'s icon?

  • How can I change Notepad++'s icon?

    The standard green icon is awfully “loud” on my desktop screen where I keep a lot of text files. I would really like to change it to samething less bright… and boring I suppose… but also less distracting for me and my eyes.

    Thanks for any assistance.

  • In Windows -> right click on shotcut -> Properties -> change icon

    Personally, I like the little green guy.
