In Studio 2011 I have different icons for the different file types (package-, TM-, project-files) but all files are opened with the same Studio 2011 if I double click on a such a file in the explorer.

Now I have installed Studio 2014 and therefore I want to open files standard with the 2014 version. So I changed the standard program coupled to the extensions from Studio 2011 into Studio 2014. But now all icons are the same, the standard icon for the studio.exe file. I cannot change the icon of a separate file, only the linked program. Is there any way to change this back, it was so easy to recognize files with a specific icon.......(so change only the icon, not the coupled program, I work with Windows 7)
