    Hello!

    Its been a while. :)  I am still developing my game on my Windows 10 Surface Pro, and was wondering if I could customize the app icon that shows up in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen when the game is running?  There is lots of docs on Andriod/IOS  app icons, but I didn’t see one for Windows?

    Hi!

    If you create a new V-Play Game in Qt Creator, like you maybe also did for your project, you should see this setting in the pro file:

    win32 {
        RC_FILE += win/app_icon.rc
    }

    Which sets the windows application icon to win/app_icon.rc, that declares win/app_icon.ico as the icon.

    I’m not quite sure if the same works on the Surface Pro, but if you see the V-Play Icon for your application, this is where it comes from.

    In General: Setting the application icon is not V-Play specific, but depends on how Qt handles this. You can also ask in the official Qt Forums how to set the the icon if the above setting does not work in your case. It is also possible to convert your project to a visual studio project with qmake, as described here. This should allow you to modify such app-settings directly with visual studio.

    Best,
