Try this if this video didn't work. Right click the shortcut and click properties then web documents. Change icon Click browse Go to where your games are installed like in steammapps/common Go to your game folder Then click on any app that has the icon that it originally had Then click apply, worked for me

My Steam shortcuts don't work either lol. Thanks for helping people. Even if it doesn't fix everyone, it helps a lot of people. You don't deserve the down votes.

didn't work, however, right clicking the icon, selecting 'open with' internet or internet browser worked for me

I though of that and did not work for me. That's not always that simple than just having Steam recreate a desktop shortcut. Back in the time I did something such has checking integrity of the local files and it worked. And I'm having the issue right now and after integrity check it works but for some games it did not. The issue was not on Steam but on Windows. Deleting the icon cache fixed it for me. Another issue I met is simply a game got converted to a newer version and both the new and old Icon remained with the same appID but the former icon was deleted (make sense) and cannot display anymore. I just deleted it. There may be many causes for the same looking issue. You must try different things. I wonder why it happens while you're not touching the files though... :/

Guys don't dislike. It worked for me and some others, therefore it is a way to fix it. If it didn't work for you, find other options. This is just one that happens to work for some.

I completely agree. Many times the particular fix doesn't work for me, but the info is useful nonetheless. The dislike ratio here is a traversty.

True, but he's giving people useful information, though it doesn't work for everyone, it helps many people. He certainly doesn't deserve a 4:1 dislike ratio.

The people that dislike are amongst other people that had not has much luck with this method than you had. That covers only one possibility over the many that could happen.
