Greetings there! ^_^
So - i have read about how to change the icons and all with reshacker and others -

But however when i run the 'Exported' project even after i change the icon
- The scirra icon STILL seem to appear on the bottom 'desktop' (icon that its running)
- And the top left of the window border of the game.

Any way to change this?
-Thanks

Hey Greaver, :)

Window & taskbar icons
On the "Projects" panel, in the "Files" > "Icons" folder, edit the icon images by double clicking them.
They should open in Construct's image editor just like a sprite.

The folder looks like this:

But on your project, there will be gear icons, instead of tiny owls. :)

These are the icons used in the title bar of the game window, and the desktop taskbar task button.

The "loading-logo.png" image is used when your game is just starting up and still loading. This is the icon that appears above that little blue loading bar on the black screen.

Loader style
Somewhat related...
You can change the loader style (progress bar with or without icon, etc) in the Project's properties.
With the project selected, in the "Properties" panel, under "Configuration Settings", set the "Loader style" setting to "Progress bar and logo" to use the "loading-logo.png" image mentioned earlier. This may already be the default.

Hope that helps. :)
