Replacing Opera Icon in Windows 10 Start Menue

  • I have some portable Opera Browsers which do not change the location, I created for all of them a shortcut in the folder :

    C:\Users\*******\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Where all shortcuts are being placed, changed the icon of the shortcut, and sticked them to the menue, but in the start menue it will still show the original icon. I also tried that several times and removed the shortcut fro mthat folder to recreate it somewhere else and then move it to the folder, but the result is always a standard Opera Icon.

    That makes me sad, it is now really hard to differ between the different Operas.

    So I did try another apprach, I downloaded Resource Hacker and changed the icon of the according launcher.exe file and it does show another Icon in it's folder now, but as soon as I create a shortcut, it will show the original Opera Icon again, and ofc in the menue it will also show the original Opera icon.

    WTF ?

    How can I get my Opera browsers icons in the start menue look individually different to be able to distinguis them easily ?

  • With other Browsers I did the same, and it did work.

    Still no solution, why is this the only Browser I cannot generate individually looking Links for ?? WTF ?

  • Does it help to edit the icon location in launcher.visualelementsmanifest.xml in the install directory?
