How to change Excel Icon


I've saved an excel workbook to my desktop and want to change the icon. I have tried right clicking + Properties but there is no provision there to change the icon.
Does anyone know how I can do this?
Thanks

If you move the icon somewhere like My Docs...and then right click on "Send to Desktop" you can then change the icon of the new shortcut.
