I have an HP laptop with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium.

Occasionally I will create a desktop icon which will carry the logo of my default browser, Chrome, at the time the icon is created. Sometime later I will notice that this icon has transformed from the logo of my default browser to the icon site's proprietary logo without having to do anything. How and when does this transformation occur? What triggers it?

I'm asking this question now because a few days ago I created an icon for Sling TV that still carries the Chrome logo. I know for a fact that Sling icons can carry a Sling logo. I've seen a couple. I've tried favicon.ico to no avail. 

I'm curious about what triggers the transformation at some times but not at others. Thanks.
