Steve, I'm assuming that your Wordpad files have a .DOC file extension. Open Folder Options>File Types tab and scroll down to DOC and click it once to hilite it, click the Advanced button then click the Change Icon button and choose which icon you want, hilite it and click OK. Note that the standard Wordpad icon does have a capital A in the lower right corner.
