blank matlab icon on taskbar after a change in matlab directory.

52 views (last 30 days)
The original matlab directory is c:\matlab\r2023 and r2023 was moved to c:\ to replace c:\matlab and renamed as matlab r2023. Matlab still works properly except that the matlab icon on the taskbar becomes blank. How to change this icon to the original matlab icon?

To restore the MATLAB icon, you should right-click on any impacted MATLAB icons, select 'Properties' and click on the 'Change Icon...' button. From here, click 'Browse' and navigate to the matlab.ico file that is located in your $MATLAB/bin/<arch> folder, where $MATLAB is your installation directory. You will then need to click Apply.
By default, the full path to the matlab.ico file is:
  • For Professional - C:/Program Files/MATLAB/{release}/bin/win64/matlab.ico
  • For Students - C:/Program Files (x86)/MATLAB/{release}/bin/win32/matlab.ico

The approach of pinning a new shortcut to the taskbar works. Thank you so much.
