nileq,

Set the icon for your application in the Project|Options|Application tab. This will automatically be used as the icon for your application in the windows task bar.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Sorry I might not have explained my question enough.
What I wonna do is:
Not simply to change the icon of my program but to get my Icon registerd on the Taskbar next to where the time is shown.
