1 Set the Application Icon Property
A If Hello, World isn’t still open from the last exercise, open it from the Visual Studio Start Screen (it will be listed on the left side under Recent Projects) or from the File menu. Display the Project Properties using any of the techniques you’ve learned, and then select the Application tab.
B Open the combobox and select <Browse...>, and Visual Studio will display a standard File Open dialog. The first time you open the dialog, Visual Studio might take you to the Microsoft Visual Studio\Common7\IDE folder, which can be a little scary, but just navigate to the folder for the application and choose conversation.ico (or whichever icon file you chose to use).
After you select the icon and click the Open button, Visual Studio will show the icon on the tab.
