adobe reader showing wrong icon in taskbar

Sometimes adobe reader shows a different icon from its official or default icon when opened in task bar.
In this video, adobe acrobat reader dc was shown to display the windows 10 photos app icon. Adobe reader may also display notepad icon (peculiar to windows 8 users). And, if you feel concerned about this behaviour or don’t like it, you can correct it.

Steps to follow:

1. Click on windows icon or goto start screen (for windows 8 users).


  1. I have the exact same issue with Nitro PDF reader in Windows 7 Home Premium. Any idea how I can fix this in Windows 7? The video instructions that have helped others don't apply to W7. Thanks!
