    I want to change the icon on the taskbar, I know how to change it in the properties but can't figure out how to add more icon options. For example if I made my own icon and wanted to use it in place of the chrome icon how would I do this?

    There's a site I use that converts .png files to .ico files, but I forgot its name. :eek: I'll get back to you on that (on mobile right now). It's important to use .png pictures because .bmp and .jpg don't support transparency (important if you want professional looking icons. :D
