how to change compiled app icon (using app designer) on the app and windows taskbar

167 views (last 30 days)
Could someone please help me to modify the default icon of MATLAB to custom icons on the compiled app using App Designer on both the app and the windows taskbar?
Please see the red square on the following figure which highlights the icons that I want to replace with custom icons.
thanks a lot!

I'm negative on this and would not waste time digging into this.
My only hope is they would add this feature in one of their next releases.

Starting in R2020b we can use the UIFigue.Icon property, for example:
UIFigure.Icon = 'myicon.png'
