How do I change the Autohotkey desktop icon?
« on: June 15, 2022, 06:16:35 pm »
Hi all,

Hoping someone can help please...

As can been seen in my screen shot, I'm wanting to change the AHK icons to something that resembles the actual game (like AC and Dirt Rally.

I converted a JPEG to .ico and used resource hacker to replace it, but it only changed the icon in the taskbar, not the actual icon on the Desktop.

Hoping this is possible, as its a bit of an experience killer!

Thanks in advance

Usually you can right-click on it, select Properties, then there should be a Change Icon button at the bottom center.

(right click on the .ahk script) use the compile option and it lets you choose an icon.
