In Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer):
Tools -> Folder options -> Filetypes
Select "TXT Text document" in the list, then: Advanced -> Change icon
Select the icon you like, maybe after browsing to an .ico, .dll, or .exe
file (you may want, for instance, to select the Vim icon from C:\Program
Files\vim\vim63\gvim.exe); then click OK as many times as necessary to
close the successive popup menus.

I didn't have the "Advanced" button available, until I first clicked
Looks like if you don't use the "Advanced" interface to set the
program, you can't change the icon.
