    So I have an icon which goes to a webpage. I would like to know how I can change the picture on the icon. I downloaded Icon Changer Free, but I can't find the icon I'd like to mess with, as it is not recognized as an app.

    By the way, I'm running Android 4.4.2 if that helps.

    I'm not sure if icon changer can do that. Using a custom launcher will give you that option, with as many different icon packs as you wish.

    Would Nova Launcher be able to do that? Also, I forgot to mention something. I'd like to replace the icon with a custom icon I made.

    Nova would do that, even when using just the free version. And yes, with a handmade icon you'll need a launcher.

    Alright, cool. If you're familiar with Nova, could you perhaps tell me how to change the icon? I don't want to change anything but the icon picture.

    Sure. Longpress on the icon, select edit and a little menu will pop up. Tap on the icon and it will give you different options. It can be from an icon pack, your gallery /photo app or other different apps. You can swipe between tabs or open the lateral menu.

    Ask if you need any help with Nova.

    Excellent, I changed the picture. However, one problem. I would like to keep my TouchWiz home instead of the Nova Launcher home. But when I go to the homescreen via TouchWiz home, the icon picture doesn't carry over.

    Yep, that's the way it is. You can easily switch between launchers but changes made in one don't affect the other one.

    Is there a way to, say, import icons from Nova Launcher?

    Just to another custom launcher, not to stock. But it's very easy the other way, from stock to Nova.
