I just installed a tiny app from the Windows store on my 11 pc. Thing is that it is using a Windows icon that I happen to use on my system for the exact opposite of what this app does, so it would be nice to change the icon for the app. Can anyone tell me where it might be installed? There are no options to locate the file and it doesn't appear to be in any program file folder.

Oh wait, I see Windows has hidden it. Does anyone know how to gain access to it?

Ah, OK, never mind, its a right mess in there. Typical Microsoft.

Frequently an icon for a program will be in its .exe/Executable file and can be seen in Properties and Change icon of the shortcut to that file. But that choice is more difficult when dealing with the Taskbar.
