To add an icon to the application, double click on Properties, which should be on the top right panel in the solution explorer, where all the files are, under the project name.  And in the box, called Resources, there should be a label saying Icon: with a textbox next to it and a butto, saying "...".  Click on the button to browse for the icon to put on the application.

Or click right click on your project, select Properties, and in the Application tab and click the box to search for your icon (where it says Default Icon).  Just compile it and you are good to go.

It is a good idea to copy the icon to your project folder so that you dont have references to files all over the place, which can mess things up when you Release the application.  Last thing you want is an Exception saying the program cant find a file because the path is on your own local machine.
