    Lohtar,

    If there is any spacing in the command, then it the whole command line should be wrapped in quotes like in the link posted above by Cradom.

    Cradom and Brink,

    Where Brink got me started, the final tip from Cradom made it work, I just successfully did what I wanted to do (and have been trying for months). I am seriously extremely grateful, for someone with what I call 'Design OCD' this honestly irked me to no end and I got it fixed now.

    If you, or whomever reads this, happens to use Chrome and wants to change icons (not just the bookmark folder), the tutorial I linked to in the original post is excellent, however do make sure you replace the right original image (the one suggested in the tutorial was not right for me, but just scroll through them). If you get your username right, it really isn't that difficult to do.

    Thank you both, you made my day, and my chrome!

    This is what you helped make me do, looks a lot better than the yellow folder icon, no?
