    I assume you are referring only to MS Word?

    Click once on any Word doc file. Right click GetInfo
    Click on the Word icon and Paste you new icon.

    I must add that before you do this you need to do the above and copy the icon to your clipboard before you past.

    What if you click on Change All in The Get Info Window?

    getting MS Office icons

    This is a bug that will require a fix from Apple. A quick, laborious fix is to do Get Info, then Command-C to copy the Word icon that does, on my machine, show up in the upper left of the Get Info Panel, and then Command-V to paste the MS icon back onto the same spot. Oddly, that then makes the icon show up on the desktop file.
