How to make Oracle SQL Developer show an application icon?

When running Oracle SQL Developer v21.2.1.204 on Windows 10 it only shows a generic "plain text" icon in the task bar, not the application icon. I have tried to assign the icon found in file sqldeveloperbinsqldeveloper.exe from the installation folder to the shortcut that starts SQL Developer but Windows still shows the generic application icon instead.

Is there a way to get Oracle SQL Developer to use its specific application icon for the Windows task bar?
