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.

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.

If I understand your question correctly , then you want to add your icon in the system tray... correct?

Well, there are some components which can this for you very easely :

 Like RxTrayIcon of Freeware RxLib

 (besides, very good library!)

but in fact it isn't that difficult to do...
I can give you an explenation, but I know a very good one (better then I could), so I direct you to there :
